Solar Eclipse Fun!

On August 21st, the United States will experience its first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse since 1918, that's 99 years! Everyone in the contiguous US will be able to see this solar eclipse! If you are lucky enough to see it in totality, I am way jealous. We will see about 90% here in Denver. =)

This solar eclipse falls on our first day of school! I am beyond excited to share this experience with our students. Our PTA has ordered us 700 pairs of solar viewing glasses (Amazon has a lot of options) so that all of our staff and students can watch safely! If you purchase a set for your class, make sure they are CE and ISO certified.

Below is a super easy art activity we are going to do on the day of the solar eclipse, along with some other activities for before, during, and after...

Who else is stoked for the solar eclipse? I can't wait!
