STRAND: Integrating Multiple Learning Experiences and Connecting to Move Forward

Show Details

Get ready for the 2023 and 2024 solar eclipses. See how learning activities about Earth, the Moon, and Sun provide three-dimensional learning experiences to connect to these events that will be more spectacular than the 2017 eclipse.

Participants will: 1. have a better understanding of what is meant by three-dimensional learning; 2. see how 3-D learning can lead to knowing what causes lunar phases and eclipses; and 3. be prepared to enjoy the solar eclipses in 2023 and 2024.
