Recently, Person told us that the total clips is coming to Oregon near where we live and that people are very excited. We know what total means and we know what clips are because we are very smart. What we don't understand is why everyone is excited about clips. Other than that clips are often found on chip bags, we don't find them very exciting but people are really strange.
|OK, this is really boring!|
To get ready for the total clips, we gathered all of the clips we could find and put them in a pile to wait for something exciting to happen. This was not exciting at all and the clips just sat there doing nothing... We asked Person about this and she explained that she had said eclipse and not clips. An eclipse is very different from clips and involves the sun and moon.
|Passing this useful information on to Zoe.|
Person let us watch a video about the eclipse and we learned that we need special eye protection to watch it. We decided to get right to work making some because the eclipse is coming soon.
|This should be everything we need.|
We are going to make a pinhole viewer for me. Elsie already has glasses which we think we can cleverly adapt for her to use.
|Trace carefully Elsie.|
|We've got the paper attached.|
|Now to poke it with a pin since it's a pinhole viewer.|
The pinhole we made seemed way too small, so we made some executive decisions and decided to poke it with a pencil to make the hole bigger. We are super good at science.
|I'm an excellent supervisor.|
|We can both see each other so that is good.|
Now we just need to adapt Elsie's glasses. Person says it will get dark during the total eclipse so we think we need to make Elsie's glasses dark.
|This black paper should make the glasses dark.|
|Neither of us can see anything, so we must have done it right.|
If the eclipse is coming for us, you can tell it that we are ready. It still seems like a boring Person type thing but we will see. There has not been any mention of snacks. What do you think about the eclipse?
