This fascinating animated power point will help your students understand the differences between these two phenomena. The two parts of a shadow (umbra and penumbra) can clearly be seen and discussed. Why is it that few people get the chance to see a solar eclipse, while the whole night side of earth can view a lunar eclipse. What moons cause these events to take place and why don't they happen every month! Lots of animations........... that can lead to lots of awesome discussions with your students. They will actually be able to visualize what is going on!
