Learn about stars and constellations through this set of lessons that encourage students to explore the sky. Students will explore constellations to learn about their stories and how they change throughout the year.

This easy-to-use resource includes:

  • three complete lesson plans to learn about stars, life cycles of stars, and constellations. Topics include the definition and characteristics of stars including the Sun, uses of stars; stages in the life cycle of stars including stages: stellar nebula, main sequence massive star, main sequence average star, black dwarf, white dwarf, planetary nebular, red supergiant, neutron star, red giant, black hole, supernova; common constellations, constellations and time and differences in how cultures interpret constellations
  • student pages and templates.
  • a variety of activities so students can express their learning in a variety of ways.
  • answer keys and suggested answers.
  • photos of student examples.
  • opportunities to extend learning.
  • Canadian spellings and metric measurements. This includes SI Notation on numbers (so 39 000 instead of 39,000)
  • ideas for how to use this resource in the classroom, online, or a mix.
  • a digital version of all the student pages that use Google Slides. You must download the PDF file and use the access link in the file to get your digital copy.
    This resource was designed to align with:
    • the Alberta Program of Studies Grade 6 Sky Science (old outcomes)

    This resource supports:

    • any unit about space or astronomy
    • Alberta Science Curriculum © 2022 Grade 4-6 (new outcomes). This outcome may be too advanced for Grade 4, but some of the constellation activities might be helpful to Alberta teachers with bright students.

    This resource can be found in our Astronomy Unit Bundle (not recommended for Alberta teachers).
