Prepare for the August 21, 2017 Experience of a lifetime
PREPARING FOR THE ECLIPSE
On August 21, 2017 most of North America is in the path of a rare sight, a total eclipse of the sun. There are tons of new resources ready to use in the classroom to share this exciting once in a lifetime event with students and families. Build excitement and prepare students to view the eclipse safely using resources now available at NASA and PBS Learning Media.
PBS Learning Media has developed a downloadable guide to help you teach about the upcoming solar eclipse. It points to resources on both the NASA and PBS LearningMedia sites, and answers some of the questions teachers asked PBS Learning Media in a recent survey. There will be exciting informal professional development events about the solar eclipse available online.
