An alternative method for safe viewing of the partially eclipsed sun is pinhole projection (https://eclipse.aas.org/eye-safety/projection) For example, cross the outstretched, slightly open fingers of one hand over the outstretched, slightly open fingers of the other, creating a waffle pattern. With your back to the sun, look at your hands’ shadow on the ground. The little spaces between your fingers will project a grid of small images on the ground, showing the sun as a crescent during the partial phases of the eclipse. Or, just look at the shadow of a leafy tree during the partial eclipse; you will see the ground dappled with crescent Suns projected by the tiny spaces between the leaves.
NASA and Exploratorium are working together to provide a live streaming of the eclipse. They also have various eclipse related resources on their website including this 2-page flyer: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/publications/2017EclipseAcrossAmericaFlyer_508.pdf
Discovery Education has a variety of resources for each grade level. You will find a variety of multimedia options, from videos and maps to pictures and lesson starters.
How many eclipses are left in your lifetime?
