The teacher introduces the galaxies and explains what is the Milky Way that we can see at night. The aim of this lesson is for students to understand that stars exist in galaxies and that galaxies have many different shapes. They will learn that the Milky Way is not the only galaxy. One other galaxy, Andromeda, which is relatively close, is introduced. Students can do an assignment by making their own galaxies with coloured cotton wool, glitter, glue and string.
