In this PowerPoint, students are introduced to the ideas behind and the evidence for the Big Bang Theory. The lecture addresses the ideas of Edwin Hubble, what we know about the first 3 minutes after the Big Bang, what the "3 Pillars" of evidence are, and finally what the make up of the universe is. There are links in the power point to short videos on YouTube that will enhance the content for students. This product includes a "Fill-In-The-Blank" student notesheet.
