Our Big Bang Theory lesson plan introduces the students to the theory of the Big Bang and the beginning of the universe about 14 billion years ago. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner and utilize their creativity to create a short two-person play where they are ”talking to each other” as particles about the Big Bang Theory from the particles’ perspectives and perform the play for their class, sharpening their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to answer questions about the Big Bang on their own, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and explain the Big Bang Theory.
