Throughout this activity, students will have the opportunity to learn about different possible effects of the upcoming total solar eclipse. After completing the close read, the students will complete a graphic organizer based on the information in the article, as well as use a separate graphic organizer to create their own public service announcement to inform others about what may happen in their area on August 21, 2017. Students may present these PSA’s to the class live, video themselves and then present the videos to their peers, or follow through with a green screen video!
This set includes:
1. Close-read about the possible effects of the upcoming solar eclipse
2. “Get Your Facts Straight” graphic organizer
3. Public Service Announcement graphic organizer
