Product Highlights

  • Use evidence to support the formation of the universe through the Big Bang.
  • In addition to earth science, these materials can be used in a high school physics course.
  • High school laboratory investigation with enough materials for 10 lab groups.
  • Carolina Kits 3D®—Labs that use phenomena to support NGSS and 3-dimensional instruction.

Back to Top

Use evidence to support the formation of the universe through the Big Bang theory in the classroom. In this series of 5 investigations, students collect pieces of evidence that each provide part of the story. They explore the spectra of different elements and light sources, analyze star spectrographs, investigate the Doppler effect for sound and light, model the expansion of the universe, and digitally observe the remnants of the Big Bang.

Curriculum Connection
While designed for a stand-alone earth science course, this series of activities could be incorporated into a high school physics course.

Time Requirement
Teacher prep, 45 minutes. Completing the activities, approximately 1 week (180 minutes).

Digital Resources
Includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS. Digital resources may include a teacher manual and student guide, pre-lab activities and setup videos, phenomenon videos, simulations, and post-lab analysis and assessments.

Performance Expectation(s)
HS-ESS1-2. Construct an explanation of the Big Bang theory based on astronomical evidence of light spectra, motion of distant galaxies, and composition of matter in the universe.
