Some Constellation
Introduction To identify the constellations.
Materials Flashcards with constellations drawn on one side and their names on the other side.

1. All players sit in a circle with the deck of cards in the middle.

2. One person starts the game by taking the top card and flashing it to his/her neighbour. The neighbour must identify the constellation. If he/she cannot properly identify the constellation the next neighbour tries, and on this process goes until the constellation is identified. The card is then put aside.

3. The first person to identify the constellation flashes the next card and the same process is repeated.

4. The game has ended when there are no more cards left.
