Here's a fun activity to help the kids learn more about a solar eclipse. Print the pages onto some card, cut out the suns and moons (and laminate if you wish) - then see if the children can match the suns and moons by size to create their own solar eclipse!
Sun And Moon Size Sorting
We've created a fun and challenging worksheet to help the kids learn about day and night. Can they shade part of the earth in darkness and say whether it's day or night on each picture?
Have you ever seen the moon change shape in the sky from a thin crescent to a full moon then back again over a lunar month? There are eight named phases of the moon, and these cards are a fun way to help children learn them.
