📚 Lesson Plan #28

An Eclipse of a Lifetime!

Happy Tuesday, fabulous educators!

We’re less than a week away from the astronomical event of the decade: a total eclipse of the sun. 🌞 On the afternoon of April 8th, the moon will slip between the Earth and the sun, plunging roughly 44 million people, from Mexico to eastern Canada, into as much as four minutes of complete darkness.

To help you teach your students about this spectacular event, we’ve gathered some videos that you might find useful.

Goodable in the Classroom is your ultimate source for all things good and wonderful and we need your help to unleash its awesomeness. Spread the word. Shout it from the rooftops, write it on the walls, or send smoke signals if you have to (just make sure you don't set anything on fire). Are you in? Yeah, you are! Let's do this! 👇🏽
