Mix Astronomy with Art in a Chalk Pastel Meteor Shower

21 May



My girls have been very interested in astronomy for a while, so we decided to study it more in depth this year for science. After talking about meteors, we made several attempts to view some meteor showers. Unfortunately cloudy skies have thwarted our plans repeatedly!

So we came up with a way to draw our own! We used black poster board and chalk pastels.


I showed the kids how they could use the pastels to make a dot and then use their finger to smear it into a streak to resemble a meteor.



After making several meteors, they drew houses in the for ground.


Now the girls had their own meteor showers they could see anytime they wanted. 


Of course, we still plan to try again to view the real thing!
