The ‘Amazing Space!’ January – March 2012 student newsletter is now available for free download from my website. The direct link for downloading the newsletter is: Amazing_Space_Newsletter_January_March_2012
The newsletter’s content for this issue (Term 1 2012) includes finder charts to assist your students in locating Venus and Jupiter (both easily visible to the unaided eye) , where to look for easily recognisable constellations (Southern Cross and Orion ‘The Hunter’) and Moon phases for this term. Potential uses for the newsletter include sending it home as extension (fun) homework for students or enlarging it and placing it on your classroom wall for students to use.
Back issues of the newsletter (dating back to January 2009) can be found here on my site.
