Strategies For Diverse Learners:
After students choose the constellation they want to write about, students can be grouped by who is working on a particular constellation and help each other discuss and write about their culture and apply it into a new imaginary myth.
Teacher can supply materials if students do not have basics such as markers, colored pencils, or crayons for illustrations.
Perhaps you can take a field trip to the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum in Price, Utah, to view Native American Indian artifacts.
Museums near you may have the same thing, i.e. Green River, The Wesley Powell Museum or The Edge of the Cedars in Blanding, Utah, and also San Rafael in Emery County.
Encourage families to view the Winter constellations during the months of December-March with a spotting scope, binoculars, or telescope.

Story telling flannel board, along with flannel die cuts to represent poem during storytelling (constellation illustrations can be enlarged and traced to create the flannel die cut pieces to use). Other pieces can be created such as an Indian princess, a burlap type bag, golden stars to surround the constellations...use one's own imagination for creating additional flannel pieces to compliment the story.
