A solar eclipse project we did based on the News 2 You article we read this week.  Just glue a yellow sun to black construction paper.  Then create a black moon and attach it by poking a hole and using a fastener.  Voila, you have a moveable moon for a solar eclipse.  It was great for fine motor skills, as we cut out each individual ray for the sun.  My class suns are pictured at the bottom.
