Science: Constellations by Season

(Narrated by Jadon.  Typed by mommy)

For Science class, we went to this website:  neave.com/planetarium

We clicked on the map to show where we live and then when we changed the dates on the calendar, we could see the different constellations for our area through out the year.  It was fun.  I made these flash cards to show the different constellations.

I think Ursa Major looks like a person flying with their hands out.

I think Pegasus looks like an octopus with a big head.

I think Cygnus looks like a scarecrow.  Without the stuff on it.

I think Taurus looks like the wishbone.

Orion is actually only one of these but I drew two because I wanted to.  I think Orion looks like somebody playing a guitar.

This one I drew four because I wanted to.  Cassiopeia looks like a number, “3” or “M” or “W”.

Leo looks like a mouse.  It’s called, Leo the Lion but I think it looks more like a mouse.  Leo the Mouse!

Canis Major just looks weird.  It looks like a big, “F” with a big mouth.

Bootes is not an ice cream cone.  The website said it looks like an ice cream cone.  It’s not.  Bootes looks like a kite to me.

Sagittarius just looks funky.  Looks like a giant robot with three claws.

Scorpian does not look like a scorpion.  It looks like the letter, “J” for Jadon.  I think this constellation should be named, Jadon.

  1. Thank you! I think the constellation that was the worst and hardest to find was Bootes because of the hint. The hint is: It looks like an ice cream cone. It looks like a kite to me. Not, an ice cream cone.
