Introduction to Mythology/ Informational Text

Zoo In The Sky: A Book of Animal Constellations - Jacqueline Mitton, Christina Balit

This book would be great to use in a 3rd grade class. The fact that it is in a story form, but gives us information about the constellations is a great way to get children engaged and learning about astronomy and mythology. Also, this is another great National Geographic book! I would find a graphic organizer that we could use or we could possibly map out our favorite constellations based on this book!
