Mrs. Solomon used the solar eclipse and seized the opportunity to bring the real world into her 6th Grade Language Arts class at ECMS! Her lesson creatively linked history, science and language arts and made use of multiple sources to keep the students actively involved in learning! Through modeling how a solar eclipse occurs, showing a video explaining how Newton and Einstein used eclipses to prove their theories, reading an article about how Christopher Columbus used a total lunar eclipse to save him from disaster and watching a live video feed of the solar eclipse, Mrs. Solomon’s students experienced a true educational treat on the historic day of the total solar eclipse!!!
