Group A made the Sun and the eight planets. Group B made the stars and the moon. Group C made constellations using chart paper and colours. Group D made the orbits of the planets and Group E named the planets and constellations. Through team work and cooperation as a means to learning ,the students learned the sequence of planets in the Solar system and pattern in the Constellations. It was a fun filled activity with a strong purpose of learning emphazised.
