Galaxies

Activities

1.  Want to learn more about galaxies?  PBS has some great videos and other resources for you to learn about galaxies and what makes each one unique.

2.  Galaxies are always moving.  You can create your own swirling galaxy in a jar by following these instructions.  Make sure you get permission from an adult first!

3.  You can make constellations, or groups of starts, shine on your walls!  Print your own constellation cards and grab a flashlight.  Next time you are outside after sunset, try to find your favorites in the night sky!

As you probably know, we all live in the Milky Way galaxy.  But did you know there are HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of other GALAXIES in the universe?  What do they look like, how were they formed and how long would it take to travel to one?
