Mr. Howler made us put a pinhole in one plate and then we would go outside and stand with our backs facing the sun. He instructed us to hold up the second paper plate further away from the first plate with the hole and we were able to see the shadow of the eclipse on the plate! We went outside when it was the darkest, and then he led us inside.
Mr. Mandrill and the other teachers then put mirrors outside and placed them to where they would reflect on the wall so we were able to watch more of the eclipse while we were in our classroom. It was a great day and I can't wait for the next eclipse, because I'll be ready for it!
