2017 Total Solar Eclipse Teacher Toolkit

Posted by Janice Sante on

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse – in which the Moon completely covers the disk of the Sun – will cross the entire continental United States. This event will be a memorable sight for students in the path of the eclipse and won't happen again in the contiguous U.S. until 2024. To help students and teachers make the most of this rare opportunity, NOVA has put together a few resources to help you understand how eclipses work and why they happen. In this featured video below, students can learn about the stages of a total solar eclipse and the path of totality. Teacher support materials are included! WATCH: Total Summer Eclipse Animation!
