Well.. the eclipse was pretty nondescript around here! How was it for you? Not wanting to have a one off day of unrelated learning we set about planning a short topic exploring the solar system and even though the clouds tried to hinder us, we did manage some useful and interesting learning out of it. To prepare, we made our obligatory pinhole projectors, which of course involved lots of discussion about why not to look at the sun. Little did I know that testing these with torches was to be the best use we would get out of them!
