Paper Plate Shooting Star Craft

Contributed by Kaitlyn Guenther

paper plate shooting star craft

When you see a shooting star in the sky, you're actually seeing a really fast space rock (called a meteor) burning up as it enters Earth's atmosphere. Different chemicals in the rock will make the meteor burn with a different colour, which is why not all shooting stars are the same colour. Also, the shooting stars may change colours as they travel across the sky based on their speed.

This fun and interactive paper plate craft lets you create a colour changing shooting star of your own! And don't forget... make a wish!
