    Solar Eclipse Module

    Get ready for the April 8th Eclipse!

    Nassau BOCES and the Center for Online Learning have developed a new mini-course offered at four grade band levels- K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 to support students' understanding of how and why solar eclipses occur. These units contain everything you need to make these eclipses come alive for your students.

    The Solar Eclipse course is housed in the Learning Management System (LMS) Agilix Buzz. Teachers will be given full editing rights to the course to edit/modify or enhance the content to meet the needs of their students. 

    Activities include:

    • Discussion threads
    • Checks for understanding
    • Formative assessments
    • Complete activities to prepare students to better understand how to prepare and safely view the upcoming eclipses  

    Your students will be able to:

    • Learn how and why eclipses occur
    • Learn how to safely view eclipses
    • Learn about the cultural and historical significance of eclipses
