Here's a great way for children to learn about the night sky. They'll find out how to locate the most prominent constellations, including the Big Dipper, Orion, Leo, Cassiopeia, and many more. And they'll have fun exploring stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects by doing activities such as creating a galaxy with a tea bag and a bowl of water, and making a planetarium with a shoebox and a flashlight.
