2024 Eclipse Information for Educators!
Eclipse2024.org will collect and host lesson plan information for you to prepare for the eclipse!
Eclipse2024.org will be making a concerted effort to contact every single newspaper, radio station, and TV station in or near the path of totality, in order to notify them to disseminate information to their customers, and provide updates as new information is required. There is a wealth of eclipse information available on this site and many others, so you can be sure to provide accurate, timely, and correct guidance to everyone in your area.
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, eclipse2024.org 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! 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!
