Get ready to celebrate the August 2017 Solar Eclipse with your students with a week's worth of activities, writing prompts, crafts, party ideas, letters to parents, class books, and more! In this free video I will go over all of the items you will find in my solar eclipse resource. This resource is jam-packed with everything you will need to celebrate the solar eclipse in style. (Most items can be used to talk about any solar eclipse!)

The Perfect Solar Eclipse Resource!

This eclipse will be a once in a lifetime event for many Americans and this is the perfect resource for a variety of grade levels! I am so excited to experience this amazing event with my students and spent months making sure I included everything you could possibly need to celebrate this event in style. :)

I designed this resource with Preschool through 2nd grade in mind, although many of the activities and assignments would also work for older students. I've included a variety of differentiated activities, including some simple "tracing & coloring" sheets for those students just starting preschool and kindergarten.
