    I hope the "houses/teams" in our school begins to teach around themes.
    Ideas for stars: Exploration to the stars (I'm a treckie), the Hubble telescope,
    the SETI project (search for extraterrestrial life), Sports stars and
    movie stars,
    study of our closet star (the sun), history of beliefs about the stars,
    study of prima donnas, star as a symbol, star of david to a pentagram,
    gold stars (study of rewards), Why we can't see the stars ? Stars and
    navigation, Stars and our calendar, etc. etc.
