Hi, my name is Christina and this is a solar eclipse craft project. We'll be using three pieces of construction paper to demonstrate to our kindergartners what a solar eclipse is and how it works. For this project, well be using two pieces of black construction paper, a yellow piece of construction paper, a glue-stick and scissors. First, we'll be drawing a circle on our yellow paper for a Sun. If you don't have a compass, you can easily help kids make one by using two pens. Using your pens, you're firmly going to firmly hold them in your hand at an angle. Keeping them stationary while you turn the paper. Next, using our scissors, we're going to cut out our Sun shape. Next, on our black piece of paper, we're going to draw a circle slightly smaller than the Sun, then we're going to cut that out. Now, on our black piece of paper, we're going to glue down the Sun. Glue the side that has the pen markings on it and flip it over and press it on. While they're doing this, you can teach kids about a solar eclipse. Now we're going to glue our smaller black circle on top of the yellow circle. Now your solar eclipse is finished. This craft is a great way to teach kids about a solar eclipse and relative size. Thanks for watching.
