The winning entry will be illustrated and added to the map that you can see above. Good luck to everyone taking part!”

  1. Visit the star writing page to enter the competition with your students
  2. If you would prefer, you can also print this activity sheet and ask your students to complete it. Then email all entries to [email protected]zookeeper.com or Tweet us on @nightzookeeper
