It was amazing to watch the eclipse in school today! When the Moon covers the Sun it is called an eclipse. We had one on the 20th of March. The weather became colder and the sky turned darker. The sheep bleated loudly and the birds stopped singing.
We watched the eclipse through a huge pinhole camera and a special sun visor. An eclipse looks like the Sun has had a gigantic bite taken out of it but really the Moon is covering it up. It gets cold and dark because we're under a massive moon shadow.
We created a ginormous pandemonium with instruments to scare away the Sun Dragon that we pretended was chomping up the Sun. We were all happy and excited because it was the first time ever that we had seen an eclipse!
