Create a memory page for your students and mail it to them!
Total Eclipse Stamps are from USPS!
“The Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp is the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. Placing your finger over the black disc on the stamp causes the ink to change from black to clear to reveal an underlying image of the moon. The image reverts back to the black disc once it cools. The back of the stamp pane shows a map of the eclipse path.”
For less than $20, you can save a memory for your students! What can your students do?
