Reliable sources at the North Pole report that Santa Claus and his reindeer plan to linger over North America after sunrise on Christmas Day, long after all the presents have been delivered. Why? The Jolly Old Elf is hoping to catch a glimpse of a partial solar eclipse!
This week's episode of Thursday's Classroom features stories for kids and seven original lesson plans about the coming solar eclipse. For details visit:
The Dec. 25th eclipse will be limited to North America, but if you live elsewhere we have lessons for you, too. Please see "Interplanetary Christmas" for plenty of educational holiday activities:
