Teaching the formation of the universe is a highly personal topic. While some choose to teach creation of the universe from a biblical perspective, I have chosen to teach this subject from a scientific perspective. Although some of the lesson directly aligns with science, much of the material and activities should be useful to lessons based on other views.
Since much of the matter in the universe is spinning and shaped like a spiral, we found and discussed spirals familiar to us.
River water flowing around obstacles
Horns of big horn sheep
Water flowing down the drain and toilet
Inspired by the galaxies on The Art Club Blog, we created our own.
