Eclipses

Our Eclipses lesson plan teaches students about solar and lunar eclipses. Students learn related vocabulary and learn the differences between solar and lunar eclipses and how to differentiate between the two.

Our Eclipses lesson plan introduces students to solar and lunar eclipses. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create their own myths about solar and lunar eclipses, complete with illustrations, and then share them with the class, strengthening their presentation skills and allowing them to engage with the lesson material in a fun and creative way. Students are also asked to independently match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and explain an eclipse and identify the difference between solar and lunar eclipses.
