A Total Solar Eclipse

On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse crossed the United States. Collected here are a few educational activities related to eclipse science 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.
