WATCHING A SOLAR ECLIPSE, from SUN FUN by Caroline Arnold
Pinhole eclipse viewer, from Sun Fun, text and illustrations by Caroline Arnold
My book SUN FUN, originally published in 1981 and now available as an ebook on Amazon, includes eleven projects for primary school age children to learn about the sun. With the solar eclipse coming on August 21st, making a pin hole viewer is the perfect activity to safely observe the eclipse. (The illustrations in the book are my own, created in the days of pre-separated art. I had to make a separate drawing for each printed color.)
Enjoy watching the eclipse safely!
