Thousands of Sulphur Springs Union School District students participated in a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience on Monday morning when they viewed the rare solar eclipse.
Students and staff donned safety viewing glasses, carried student-made pinhole cameras and went to viewing stations around each of the nine school campuses.
Transitional-Kindergarten through 6th grade students were awestruck as they gazed upward as audible gasps were heard across the playgrounds.
The learning continued in the classrooms, as teachers created a morning filled with live solar eclipse footage streaming on class SMART Boards.
Students researched the solar eclipse on iPads and Chromebooks, made eclipse art projects and solved eclipse math problems.
The staff, teachers, volunteers and administrators designed unforgettable student learning experiences around this extraordinary event.
