This power point presentation contains 40 slides of excellent animations that are sure to help your students understand both the solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse on a much deeper level.
The visuals in this power point will show the students why a lunar eclipse can only happen at night during the full moon phase, and why a solar eclipse can only happen during the daytime while the new moon phase occurs. These slides will help students see why a straight line needs to be made between the three celestial bodies.
The 17 PPT slides covering the lunar eclipse topic will also break down the differences between a penumbral lunar eclipse, a partial lunar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse. This portion of the PPT even addresses the blood moon and the reason why the moon turns red while it is within totality.
The 23 PPT slides covering the solar eclipse topic will discuss all four solar eclipses: partial, total, annular and hybrid. You will love the visuals from different angles that have been very accurately represented in this power point presentation.
If you have purchased my moon bundle unit or my mini-unit on eclipses, do not buy this product, you already have it! However, if you want a bit more than this, including printable lesson plans, activities and an assessment, one of these units may be more useful to you. Enjoy!
