Challenge 3

Look to the Stars

Thousands of years ago, before there were any calendars or clocks, people kept track of time by watching the sun and the stars. It was important for them to know the time in order to sow their crops and reap their harvests. These people were the first astronomers.

This week we’ve given you loads of information about the men and women who’s fascination with the night sky taught us what we know about space. You can use the worksheet below to organise your information and show people what you’ve learnt.
