    There are common planispheres for use by children ages 8 and up still manufactured and sold at educational toy stores, science museum gift shops, etc. I bought two for $5.99 each at a science toy store in Narragansett just before Christmas. Of course for older children (teens and up), the star-finding apps available for free or a couple of dollars on any smartphone, tablet, or similar "pocket" computer, are more convenient and more fun, too. There's good potential for celestial navigation education in an app that specifically targets topics like Ho versus Hc and the 57 traditional navigational stars.
