Sounds like they recognized it is a big event. I watched on TV too. Here in San Diego we had a 58% eclipse. The sun was bright, but it seemed kind of hazy like a storm brewing.
I guess it can be attention span thing for age groups. But, I admire you for turning it into an event. It may have greater value to her later in life remembering it.
I saw on the local news the kids with their glasses watching it. They seemed intense doing it. I wonder about the questions and what different questions there are for different age groups. I wonder if your son may have oohed & ahhed if actual see
That is an interesting question Tim. I wonder. I would assume that those children were at least 12 or so. I don't think you could trust 6-7 year olds. And I would be leery about the teachers who are not science teachers understanding it for learning.
It looked like the kids they showed were younger than twelve, but I am a poor judge of age. They just looked to short for twelve.
