Recently I had my second graders created these beautiful space pictures. To begin, I had my students draw small white stars onto black paper. Next, students drew planets, space ships, aliens, ect. on white paper. These were then cut out and glued to their black paper.
My students love this project every year. I swear my students have more knowledge about space than I do. Throughout this project, students were telling me random facts about planets, stars, and NASA.
This very simple project had wonderful results.
