On August 21, 2017, the citizens of Missouri will get to witness a total solar eclipse. This will be the first total solar eclipse viewable in Missouri since 1869, and for the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, this will be the first total solar eclipse since 1442. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime event! Additionally, this provides teachers with a unique learning opportunity, grounded in the GLEs/CLEs and new Missouri Learning Standards!

Here are some resources for teachers who are planning lessons around the eclipse:
