Eclipse2017.org will collect and host lesson plan information for
you to prepare for the eclipse!
We understand that it is a very difficult situation to put
you in, to ask that you take on the responsibility of overseeing your
students while they're watching a phenomenon that could potentially damage
their eyes if proper precautions are not taken. Still, the educational
opportunities presented by this event are impossible to overstate.
Therefore, eclipse2017.org, inc. recommends that you use this event as a
chance to teach everything you can about the dynamics of the motion of the
earth and moon, and encourage students to watch it themselves with their
parents - even if this means staying home from school on eclipse day!
(Schools which have not yet started as of August 21 will not face this
dilemma.) We recommend that you have the students report their experiences
on eclipse day as the final written report of an educational project, and
if you like, submit some of them
to us for inclusion on this site!
