The Vanishing Sun

This Knowledge Set is designed to promote scientific inquiry as students learn about how ordinary people and scientists across the U.S. are planning to study the solar total eclipse that will take place on August 21, 2017. The initial text in this set introduces ancient beliefs about the cause of solar eclipses. Students then read texts that provide modern scientific explanations for solar eclipses.
