At the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation, students at Fortville Elementary School made the "Day Turn into Night" PJ party all day. Small groups of supervised students went outside with special ISO glasses to view the solar eclipse. Students were monitored closely, and a few parent volunteers assisted with the supervision. Students were truly in awe of the eclipse!
One fun activity the students participated in for the solar eclipse party was creating their own solar eclipses in their art class. During the art class, students were seen "orbiting" with their solar eclipse.
Another fun activity the students participated in was putting a time capsule together. They made their time capsules per grade level which will be dug up by the same students at the next eclipse in seven years.
The elementary students were excited as they watched the eclipse through their special glasses. Even the older students at Mt. Comfort Elementary were seen relaxing in the grass with pillows and blankets, enjoying the spectacle.
Fortville Elementary students are in awe of seeing the eclipse through their glasses.
