Northern Lights

Our story today from A Year Full of Stories is The Bird Wife an Inuit tale, so as normal we read the story, talked about the illustrations, the loved this picture from the book and decided to try and paint it themselves.

We then spent some time looking at photos and short clips of the northern lights, then used chalk pastels to recreate this.

While researching a bit more about the northern lights, M and I came across this website which contains a simple description on how and why they occur and also 15 stories from different indigenous tribes, which I found very interesting.
