NASA’s The Space Place: Make a Star Finder

NASA provides a great site for learning about constellations. Learn how a star tracker helps a spacecraft find its way in space. Print out a star finder for July to see where major constellations are in the sky. You can print out the star finders for other months too so you’ll be prepared when a special month comes around. Once you’ve printed your star finder, follow the directions carefully so you can fold the star finder correctly in order to play the Star Finder game. Practice with a friend so you can both learn about the skies.
