High schoolers explore plate tectonics, the "Big Bang" theory and Earth's history through geological evidence. In this understanding Earth's history lesson plan, students complete a 20 question worksheet on the history of Earth including a time line of Earth's major events.
Students study the origin of the universe. In this earth science instructional activity, students observe teacher demonstrations and connect them to the big bang theory. They explain what the Hubble Law is all about.
Students compare and contrast the Big Bang Theory and the Cyclic Universe Model. They explain basic properties of the univers which make life possible. They evaluate ideas about the origin of the universe as to their scientific value.
Students explore our universe. In this solar system lesson, students gain knowledge about the solar system, galaxy, the universe and the Big Bang Theory. Students watch videos and view a slideshow.
Students use balloons and small bits of construction paper to visually depict the Big Bang theory of the possible origin of the universe. A great visual demonstration and very well detailed.
Learners explore the Big Bang Theory and discover how it can be used to explain the origin of the universe. In this Big Bang Theory lesson, students use a balloon with colored paper inside, blow it up and pop it, group the colored pieces based on where they landed, graph the results and then analyze the distribution as they relate to the Big Bang Theory.
Though dated with references to the Bush Administration, this instructional activity would be a good way to discuss current issues, particularly gun control. Using an article from The New York Times (linked to this instructional activity), students answer discussion questions about gun control. They are divided into four groups to research different standpoints on gun control, including the Executive Office, Congress, Gun Control Opponents, and Gun Control Advocates. Extension activities are included.
Sixth graders conduct an experiment to understand the Big Bang Theory. In this Big Bang Theory lesson, 6th graders will observe a balloon with confetti popping to emulate and analyze information related tot he Big Bang theory. Students record the results of the experiment.
Students simulate the Big Bang. In this lesson on the origin of our universe, students role play to show how the Big Bang explosion may have created our universe.
In this Big Bang worksheet, students are given the equation used to determine the rate at which the universe is expanding according to the Big Bang theory. Students solve 4 problems using this equation. They find the integral for time, they find the integral for the Inflationary Universe and the matter-dominated universe and they find the formula for Hubble's Constant for each of these situations.
In this universe worksheet, students read about the big bang theory and the evolution of the stars from the elements. Students answer four critical thinking questions about the beginnings of our universe.
Students research information about the Big Bang theory. In this space science lesson, students create a comic strip describing the origin of the universe. They evaluate research resources for correctness and relevance.
New! The Big Bang Theory
Evidence for the Big Bang theory, the definition of galaxies, the life cycle of stars, and Kepler's laws are some of the several concepts covered in this PowerPoint. Sort through the many topics, pick and choose those that most apply to your lesson for the day, and make alterations or rearrange as desired, but definitely check out the straightforward slides in this set.
Young scholars explore the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Plate Tectonics. In this history of life lesson, students explain two ways the Theory of Plate Tectonics and the Big Bang are of direct benefits to humans.
Ninth graders study the Big Bang theory. In this big bang theory lesson students research the Internet and complete several activities and create a presentation.
Ninth graders examine scientific evidence on The Big Bang Theory. This lesson provides inquiry activities for some, but not all, lines of evidence for The Big Bang. Students will apply research guidelines to access scientifically valid evidence via library and/or Internet searches.
Part three concludes "A Practical Guide to the Universe," completing the description of the Big Bang Theory and what it means. This episode touches on light travel, light speed, and what that means in relation to what we see. While this clip answers many questions, it also poses them, in terms of what we know through science and theory. A great classroom resource.
For this Big Bang Theory worksheet, learners read about how scientists simulate the original Big Bang conditions using atom smashers. Students solve 4 problems given about the Big Bang. They find the average collision energy of particles at that time, they find the number of seconds after the Big Bang that the particles collided with given energy and they determine how long it took to achieve given temperatures after the Big Bang.
Sal explains the Big Bang and the spatial concepts of infinity versus a 'sphere' of expanding matter in detail.
