2nd Grade "Zoo in the Sky"

The 2nd graders had a wonderful art time exploring the patterns in the night sky! We read the book "Zoo in the Sky" published by the National Geographic Society. We looked at a Star Chart... a map of the sky and learned about constellations. We each selected one famous constellation and drew a colorful animal in the sky... then we added stars to our constellation and then we painted shooting stars, comets, planets to create a beautiful piece of art that is "out of this world!"
