The Sun, the Moon, and Science!

For the first time in 38 years, on August 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible along a narrow path that spans the entire United States. Cool! To get your students in the spirit of solar science, this week’s FREE tool is a K–3 lesson plan for teaching students about light, heat, shadows, and objects in the sky. The lesson plan revolves around “The Sun is my Favorite Star,” a popular picture book for young people about the importance of the sun to the earth. This unique use of literature to teach science comes from “U-STARS~PLUS Science and Literature Connections,” a collection of 32 lesson plans that combine literacy and science instruction in engaging ways that aim to reach all learners.
