Every now and then, the Sun, Earth, and Moon align so that, when viewed from the Earth, the Moon eclipses the Sun's light. Solar eclipses are fairly common but it is a special event to be able to witness a total solar eclipse. In this video segment adapted from NASA, learn how solar eclipses happen and why they are so difficult to witness.
As classrooms across the country begin the change to Common Core students are being engaged in the classroom and consuming educational resources outside the classroom. PBS has been on board with the "flipped classroom" idea since the beginning and has created an enormous supply of printed, digital and video learning elements that are aligned to Common Core assignments and categorized by grade and curriculum subject. Over 40,000 digital learning elements are available free to help students, teachers and families explore lessons and new worlds.
