What is a constellation? Why are constellations useful for mapping the sky?

Report as

Constellation is kind of like a picture in a sky that is made by stars, you just imagine a bunch of lines connecting em to make a picture, like the Big Dipper or the Little Dipper.

It reminds people "oh yeah I remember this constellation when I was traveling North, so that must mean we are traveling North since it is in our way"

(bad example)
