Recorded Webinar: Phenomenon of a Solar Eclipse (grades 3 - 8)
What is a total solar eclipse? What is the difference between a partial and total solar eclipse? How do I prepare my students to observe the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017?
Watch the webinar recording above!
In 2017, you can kick off your school year with a phenomenon-based exploration of motions in the solar system, as a solar eclipse occurs on August 21, 2017.
In this 1-hour webinar, you'll learn activities to engage your students in developing and using models to understand how eclipses happen.
Lessons in this workshop will follow student learning progressions and help you understand how to scaffold different concepts such as shadows, scale, and motion so that your students can engage in authentic learning experiences.
