• Constellations

    In computers, the 2nd graders designed their own constellations using the drawing program Pixie. Each student then shared their constellation with their classmates. The class constellations were used to make a slideshow with transitions and background music. Their slideshows were then exported as a Quicktime movie.

    From the Latin base CO, meaning "together with", STELLA, meaning "star", the word CONSTELLATION means "a grouping of stars".~The Universe: Constellations, The History Channel

    Below is a slideshow of some students' original constellations.
