I have to admit, I have heard of meteor showers before, but was never quite sure what they were. I learned so much about what meteor showers are with this resource. Oh, yes… my children learned about them too. This resource is just what you need to learn what a meteor shower is and why they occur.
I had no idea meteor showers were called so many different things. It is amazing to know that although meteor showers are called shooting stars at times they really aren’t stars at all. The root word meteor comes from a Greek word that means “high in the air.”
What a perfect word for them. Now that I live on an island, the skies are such that nights are amazing for gazing.
Don’t miss out on learning exactly what meteor showers are, the most significant recorded ones, and so much more.
