Good News: Students learn about solar eclipse

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - As you know, the solar eclipse is happening Monday, and students at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy learned all about the once-in-a-lifetime event at school on Friday.

Learning is more fun when it becomes interactive. Some students even put on skits to help their fellow classmates learn what should and shouldn't be done during that time.

Savannah-Chatham students will not have school on Monday due to the eclipse, but that isn't stopping students at Charles Ellis Montessori from exploring the phenomenon. We spoke with a few of them to see how they felt about the eclipse.

WTOC: "What's your favorite thing about the solar eclipse?"

Addy Czarnecki, 5th Grade: "I think probably because it's a once-in-a-lifetime thing."

WTOC: "What's going through your mind now about the solar eclipse?"

Nico Klaras, 2nd Grade: "It's going to be cool looking."

Nazyia Patterson, 3rd Grade: "I want to learn about the sun and parts of the moon."
