The preparations started long ago for several states and many, many cities across our nation. Our town is one of those who have been preparing to host over 100,000+ guests to view the heavenly phenomenon, also known as the total solar eclipse. While community officials and workers are busy making our town pretty, I’ve been busy making free printables to use as part of our homeschooling lesson next week.
The Eclipse 2017 Printable I made includes several pages that will guide your kiddo in documenting temperature changes throughout the eclipse, invite them to draw the phases of the eclipse, answer comprehension questions, and have a little fun with a word search!
I also made a Creation Copywork printable that has ten Scriptures for your kiddo to copy. Copywork has made such a huge difference in our homeschooling and I cannot go without it!
To wrap it up, I want to throw in a good recipe for Chewy Oatmeal Cookies that can make for a healthy everyday snack:
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut milk
3/4 TSP salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 TSP baking powder
1 1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 sliced almonds or chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup dried fruit (peaches, cranberries, applies, etc.)
1. Combine brown sugar and coconut milk in a mixing bowl, stirring until creamy. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and stir just until mixed. Add remaining ingredients, folding in the fresh fruit last.
2. Scoop onto a cookie sheet with a spoon or small ice-cream scoop. The mix should be soft, but firm enough to stay in small mounds. Flatten slightly with a fork or rubber spatula (dip in water to avoid sticking).
3. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly browned on top and bottom.
Makes about 24 cookies.
