January 8 "Happy 13th birthday, Sammy!"

We just learned about how early explorers used the North Star as a compass to guide their journeys. Students learned how to find the North Star in the night sky. As a follow-up, I thought these two short videos might be interesting to view. Enjoy!

Ursa Major--The Big Dipper

There's just so much to learn!
Stay tuned for information and links to our next activity: Viking explorers.
Goodnight, everyone!
