8th Grade Studies the Stars!

What Makes a Star a Star???

by Katie Porth & Palvee

February 18, 2011

The 8th grade Science classes are studying the composition of stars. The class studied this in February.  They are studying this to understand the stars and what they are made of.  Some of the things they are studying are the size, color, temperature, chemical make-up, and brightness.  Also, the 8th graders are studying famous stars like Polaris, Rigel, and Betelgeuse.  In addition to the stars, they are studying famous constellations like Orion.  

Mrs. Porth has made a project for the students to create their own imaginary constellations.  This project is neat because they get to pick whatever they want to create and they get to write a story about it too.  Overall, the 8th graders loved doing this project.
