What’s at the center of a galaxy? A black hole! Look WAY beyond a black hole by creating a vivid galaxy and observation tube with Crayola Twistables.
Discover space! Research the universe, including the Milky Way and other galaxies. Find out more about black holes and other interesting phenomena in space. You could also experiment with how gravity bends and focuses light with a magnifying glass.
Create a galaxy. Cut out a large galaxy on posterboard with Crayola® Scissors. Draw and color six or seven concentric rings on both sides of your galaxy with Crayola Twistables. The firmer you press, the brighter your colors will be. Glue black yarn around each ring, separating the colors. Use a cotton swab and Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.
Draw and color stars on white construction paper. Cut them out and glue them on both sides of your galaxy.
Design an observation tube. Glue on black construction paper to cover a recycled cardboard tube. Cut a strip of white paper with scissors. Color it and glue it around the tube.
Slightly flatten the tube. In the center of the galaxy, trace around one end of the tube. Cut out the opening with scissors. Insert the tube through the hole. Punch a hole at the top of the galaxy. Tie yarn through the hole to form a hanger.
Present an oral report to the class using your galaxy to talk about black holes and beyond.
Send a postcard from space to show what you know about the other planets.
