A Simple Made-Up Constellation

Let's start with a simple example: a made-up constellation. Your teacher will divide you into two groups. He or she will give you a constellation. Study it, then look at the picture below. Pretend you are looking at stars in the sky. What do you see?

Someone from your group should describe what you see to the rest of the class. What did the other group see? Can you see what they saw?
