AHG Badge Help – Space Exploration #5

After one of my amazing Patriots built a scale model of the planets, I was motivated to finish the Space Exploration badge with my unit.

While I do create many of my own activities, sometimes there is no need to re-invent the wheel. Thanks to the internet, someone did the work for me.

Requirement #4 has the girls make a replica of different constellations.  I found an amazing resource on the Jesus Without Language website. All I had to do was hit the print button on my computer.

They were nice enough to provide a color version and a black and white option.  I went with the black and white option and had the Tenderhearts color the sky. I used black construction paper and stickers to make the “telescope”.  We also used hot glue to glue the “telescope” to the project because it dries quickly.

To download your own copy of this project please go to www.Jesus-without-language.net

The only work I had to do was look up the different constellations, and print images of the star patterns. It is a little hard to see how a cluster of dots make Orion or Ursa Minor, but Google is a unit leader’s best friend.

NOTE: The requirements have been simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the American Heritage Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
