Product Description
This activity can be used as a complete lesson for the Solar Eclipse happening August 21, 2017.

Objectives:
1. Predict the type and time of the solar eclipse happening in your town on August 21, 2017.
2. Distinguish between a total eclipse, a partial eclipse, a penumbra and an umbra.
3. Explain why times of viewing the eclipse vary from location to location.
4. Research the time when the "ring of fire" will be seen in a city found in the path of totality.
5. Read about eye safety with an extra credit opportunity to report out about solar retinopathy.

Students complete a reading activity, highlight key information, and view a google/Berkley simulation of the eclipse that will happen in their town. They will compare and contrast this information with a city that lies in the path of totality.
