ScratchJr Project – Solar Eclipse

ScratchJr Lesson Solar Eclipse
Create an interactive animation in ScratchJr about the Solar Eclipse and how these work. Teach young children how to code with ScratchJr

Are you ready to embark on an exciting journey through the cosmos? This ScratchJr project is here to take you on a virtual expedition to witness the recent solar eclipse, right from the comfort of your classroom or home.

Seriously though, let’s create an exciting animation and code the elements to demonstrate why, and how a solar eclipse works.

The solar eclipse of 2024 was a momentous event, sure to impress many of your students and lead them to return to class with questions, excitement, and a renewed passion for the exploration of space. (Non-Star Wars related this time.)

Plus, you’ll get the added bonus of doing all this through Interactive coding activities in ScratchJr.

In this engaging project, students and children will delve into the world of coding while learning about the basics behind a solar eclipse. The project includes all the needed images (Assets and backgrounds) as well as 2 ScratchJr project files (One with, and another without code)

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Our ScratchJr lesson guide is packed with additional resources, including:

  • Step-by-step instructions to guide learners through each stage of the project. (8-Page Booklet)
  • Clear visual icons and images to help you recreate the project.
  • And much more!
