Make a simple constellation map
Distribute materials. Brownies copy constellation on to the black sugar paper. First mark with pencil/marker the position of the stars in the constellation. Then place the stars on these marks matching the size of the sticker to the magnitude of the star if possible. Finally ‘join’ the stars as in the picture using the Glow in the dark marker.
Point out the 3 stars of Orion’s belt which is its best identifying feature. Take the Brownies outside to spot it. Orion is best viewed in Winter in the Southern sky.
