Note to potential authors: Your submission does not need to be visually refined. Just focus on the writing. Photos, illustrations, and layout will be implemented later. The important part for you to focus on is writing to make STEM subjects interesting and understandable to youth. You can refer to the articles below to see how a finished article looks when it enters a classroom.

 
 
 

Hope these examples helped you envision the

exciting opportunity this is to impact children's perceptions of STEM early in their life with fun and relevant reading material!  

 

Can't wait to see your submission!

Safe Solar Viewing (Grades 3-6 Only)

Ball games

Oreo eclipse

Each of your students will love tracking the progress of the solar eclipse with an Oreo Cookie!  Just twist it apart and use it to model current progress of the eclipse as it occurs.  Making the cookie connection will help students understand how the sun and moon interact to make the crescent shapes that their pin hole projectors show. Eat it after the eclipse :)
