It remains no surprise that we experienced a solar eclipse in America recently. While some parts of the country experienced a total eclipse, most of us saw a partial eclipse. No one witnessed anything less than 50% coverage. Further, we get another one in 7 years, when the totality will be over Texas next time around.
When we read the Bible and the book of Genesis, all we see is that God created the stars in the sky. Nothing is stated about our modern word, planet, but we can only assume that planets were included in this statement.
I do believe in the creation of our world by an amazing and mighty God, the Creator. I teach my children this truth. If you want to find out more information about Creation Science, go to Answers in Genesis. They share plenty of information and sell videos and books for the kids too.
The solar eclipse is a rare event for anyone.
The point of this lesson is to teach our children what a solar eclipse is. This short lesson includes interactive book templates, and requires scissors, glue, a pencil and paper or a spiral notebook.
Sensory Alert: Use stick glue instead of white glue, or dab Q-tips in glue.
This lesson includes a link to a kid video about a solar eclipse, but you may also go to Amazon and find books for more material. I look for books that are free or .99, so I chose a You Tube video for kids. Using nonfiction material, plus a child’s experience of the solar eclipse, helps them remember the event and learn from it.
As always, great reminders that God made the sky, keeps the solar eclipse in the context that He chose to make it happen on this day.
Without further ado, here is your lesson!
