Watch a Meteor Shower
- Grades: 3–5, 6–8
Want to know when to expect the next meteor shower? There’s a calendar at earthsky.org. If the date is right, your students may be lucky enough to see one. If not, there are many videos of meteor showers that you can watch on nasa.gov. Invite your students to make the meteor shower the center of a creative writing piece. It could be a poem about the night sky, or a short story about a meteor hitting the school. Whatever medium your students choose, the meteor shower is sure to inspire them!
