Eclipse Recording Sheet: Lunar or Solar

Every so often there is a Lunar or Solar Eclipse. I love that it happens all over and at different types. You can have partial or full eclipses depending on where you live.

Plus now you can watch them online as well. So even if you are not in the area you can still see them. I love that these are great science activities that kids can learn about.

There are many books you can read about them. Plus there is one or two at least every year.

A few years ago I made this for when we were watching the solar eclipse. It was loads of fun. But I realized that it could be used for a lunar as well!

And a full lunar eclipse is happening soon. It will be on January 20, 2019. I wanted to make sure other had the sheet they could use as well.

The sheet is simple and easy. it has a place for the date and type of eclipse. Plus there is a time area to record the time of the observation. We read the book The Moon Book by Gail Gibbons.

We did a sample sheet while watching a youtube video. It was fun to see the changes and how fast you can see it online.
