    . Our family used this in-depth unit study to learn about the upcoming eclipse. We all gained so much knowledge through the variety of learning materials, including pictures, questions, facts, and videos.

  3. Sheri GEER (verified owner)

    I looked at several resources and chose this one because it gave all the pertinent information without too much unnecessary information for a second grader. It was perfect! She really learned and retained the information!
