Product Description
On Monday, August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse will cross the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. People in parts of 14 states will witness a total solar eclipse, and everyone else in the lower 48 states will witness a partial solar eclipse. This will be the first total solar eclipse to travel coast to coast across the U.S. since 1918.

This resource is the ultimate guide for teachers and students for this event. It contains three slide presentations and an eclipse resource page.

Slide Presentation #1 – SOLAR ECLIPSE (40 slides)
This slide show is an overview of solar eclipses written in easy-to-understand language with lots of diagrams and pictures. It answers the following questions:
- What is a solar eclipse?
- What causes a solar eclipse?
- Why doesn’t a solar eclipse happen every month?
- What are the two parts of the moon’s shadow?
- What are the three types of solar eclipses?
- What is a total solar eclipse?
- How is the moon able to block the very-much-larger sun?
- What and how big is the path of totality?
- What happens during each stage of a total solar eclipse: first contact, second contact, third contact, and fourth contact.
- What are Baily’s beads?
- What is the “Diamond Ring.”
- What is the sun’s corona, and when is it visible?
- What is a partial solar eclipse?
- What causes a partial solar eclipse?
- How is the sun’s light level affected during a partial solar eclipse?
- What does a partial solar eclipse look like?
- What is an annular solar eclipse?
- What causes an annular solar eclipse?
- What does an annular solar eclipse look like before, during, and after maximum phase?
It also includes an animation depicting each of the three types of solar eclipses.

Slide Presentation #2 – THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF AUGUST 21, 2017 (35 slides)
This slide show is designed for people who will be in the path of totality, and it includes the following:
- a video overview of the path of totality across the U.S.
- a video depicting a fictitious flyover which follows the path of the moon’s shadow across the U.S. from coast to coast
- a video depicting what the eclipse looks like from the other side of the moon

- a link to each state that will experience totality. Each link gives the following information:
- the path of totality across the state
- the names of every community in the path
- for each community, the following information is given:
- the start time of the partial phase
- the start time of totality
- the duration of totality
- any official plans for viewing the eclipse
- the current weather forecast map

- an animation showing how the distance from the center line affects the duration of totality
- guidelines for safely viewing the eclipse
- detailed instructions for making a pinhole camera
- a complete chronology of the total solar eclipse from first contact through fourth contact
- illustrations of how to use small holes to project images of the crescent sun
- a diagram of stars and planets that will be visible during totality
- where the shadow goes after it leaves South Carolina
- a map showing the path of the next total solar eclipse to pass over the U.S. in 2024
- links to eclipse activities for your students
- eclipse art projects from NASA
- how to create eclipses in your classroom
- inexpensive eclipse projects from the Adler Planetarium
- many Pinterest activities for students of all ages

Slide Presentation #3 – THE PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF AUGUST 21, 2017 (24 slides)
This slide show is designed for people who will be outside of the path of totality, and it includes the following:
- explanation of a partial solar eclipse
- a video overview of the path of the eclipse across the U.S.
- a video depicting what the eclipse looks like from the other side of the moon
- a map showing how much coverage of the sun is visible across the U.S.
- guidelines for safely viewing the eclipse
- detailed instructions for making a pinhole camera
- images of a partial solar eclipse
- illustrations of how to use small holes to project images of the crescent sun
- links to eclipse activities for your students
- eclipse art projects from NASA
- how to create eclipses in your classroom
- inexpensive eclipse projects from the Adler Planetarium
- many Pinterest activities for students of all ages

All three slide presentations are in two formats - editable Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2003 and Adobe Acrobat PDF.
