Product Description
Perfect activity and complement to the solar eclipse of 2017. A precision drawing activity that uses a ruler to find the intersecting lines of shadow that form during a lunar and solar eclipse. The steps of making the diagrams are clearly presented in a pictorial manner and can be projected for students if you have a document camera. Diagrams can be made by hand or by the computer—both approaches have value. Both the solar and lunar eclipse diagrams can be made as a stand-alone assignments or could be inserted into a students’ interactive lab notebook. The grading rubric for the assignments on a 4 pt grading scale is provided.

There is also a Venn diagram for students who finish early that could also be used for a nice homework assignment.
