Product Description
Eclipse - Solar and Lunar - A Digital, Device-Based resource that will get your kids out of their seats, engaged, utilizing technology, and collaborating to solve real problems and test their knowledge.

This activity is the coolest thing I've created and your kids are going to love it, mine do. Think of a scavenger hunt, then add devices (Smartphones, Chromebooks, Laptops, or Tablets), engaged students, and learning through assessment and you have this resource.

I've created a video that walks you through the entire activity. I did it using screen capture software on my phone so you can see exactly what your students will see. CLICK HERE to have a look.

Quick Disclaimer. In order to use this activity, your classroom must have at least 1 device per 3 students. Smartphones, Chromebooks, Laptops, and Tablets will all work perfectly. The wording and delivery make this resource perfect for a wide range of grade levels. If for some reason you feel this hunt isn't perfect for your classroom, I'm happy to refund your purchase no questions asked.

The Content Includes:
• Solar eclipse
• Lunar eclipse
• Eclipse misconceptions
• Frequency and reason for eclipses
• Future and past eclipses

Buyer Comment:
- "This was perfect for the solar eclipse. I did this activity in all of my high school science classes that day because realistically- they had questions and science is the place to get those answers. Students were much better prepared to interpret what they were looking at in the afternoon during the eclipse as a result of this. Thanks!"
- "Great teachable moment for Solar Eclipse!"
