Orion in 3-D

We completed the three-dimensional Orion project from PBS today, and it was a great exercise. We used foil instead of cotton balls (because that's what I had, and it looked like stars), and simply squeezed the string into the foil balls. It was good practice for measurement, reading fractions, and spatial understanding, as well as learning some stars' names, like Betelgeuse.
Can you see Orion?
