Watch your student stars shine as they show off their knowledge of constellations. Try darkening the room and holding a flashlight in the open end of the tube; with the project near a flat surface or wall, the constellation shines through!

Lightly trace the end of the tube onto the black paper, cut out the circle, and draw the outline of a constellation on the circle. Use the pencil to poke through the black paper where each star is. Write the name of the constellation on the colorful piece of paper.
Tape the black paper to one end of the tube. Then wrap the tube with the colorful paper and tape it in place.
Hold the tube to your eye and look through the “telescope” to view the constellation!
