A constellation is a group of stars where humans have made dot-to-dot pictures with them to form pictures of animals and objects.

The purpose of constellations are to help tell us which stars are which. Constellations are recognizable patterns throughout the night sky. There is a total of 88 constellations that humans know of.

Sometimes we cannot always see the constellations because the Earth is spinning and orbiting the sun, the sun orbiting the milky way galaxy. It is an illusion that the stars drift across the sky, when it is Earth that is spinning. There are other stars orbiting the milky way too. The stars move fast but Earth spins faster. Because of this action, we cannot always see the constellations.

Greeks recognized and named 88 constellations. These were also recognized by Arabs, Egyptians and Babylonian.

Orion

Orion is one of 88 constellations. It is visible form February to November and is one of the most recognizable constellations. Orion has 18 stars. This constellation is best seen early evening in January.

Scorpius

Scorpius is one of the Zodiac signs. It is also known as the Scorpio constellation. Scorpius is Latin for Scorpion. It was one of the earliest discovered constellation.

Fun Facts

  • There are 12 Zodiac Constellations that are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. There is also 76 other constellations.
  • Names of Constellations are Latin
  • People use their understanding of constellations as navigation.

Below is my diagram/collage made out of newspaper clippings, magazines, catalouges paint-texta and wool. It is of the constellation Orion. Click on the picture to enlarge it.

Dear everyone,

Sorry I haven’t been on my blog for a while, I have been so busy with school and more. Over the past few weeks, I have had a student teacher, Mr Frost. His last day was yesterday and we had a small party. He made us chocolate crackles, honey joys and spiders. He also bought sweet and salty popcorn which was very different.

Mr Frost was at our school for 6 weeks and he taught for most of the time. We did lots of things with him such as…

Perswasive writing – writing that convinces you to do something

NAPLAN – a big test you do in grade 3, 5, year 7, 9 and 11.

Intergrated topic – Australian settlement. We chose a character and wrote about them. We do a presentation at the end of term two.

We did lots more things, some were going to Sovereign Hill, reading, maths and literacy.

Goodbye for now,

***GEORGIA***
