Activities for the Total Solar Eclipse

On August 21, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States. Everyone in North America will be able to view at least a partial solar eclipse. Collected here are a few educational activities related to the eclipse that particularly highlight the Moon (the central player in the solar eclipse!), recommended by the LRO education team. You are welcome to appropriately modify the activities as needed to ensure they meet the needs of your audience as well as the space, time, and resources you have available.
