Sample Activities and Instructions

Cut the sticky part of your post-it notes into about 10 stars.
Next, lay out your stars on the construction paper in the shape of a constellation like the little dipper, Orion, or Cassiopeia.
Connect the stars with your crayon, counting each one.
Remove your sticky stars, and draw new ones in their place on the page to practice counting again.
Then take your sticky stars, make a new constellation, and repeat. Do this until your sky is full of beautiful star constellations.
