Middle school students have SO MANY misconceptions about the Big Bang Theory, the formation of our Solar System, the formation of Earth, and even the formation of life on Earth.
This inquiry activity is a great way to dispel misconceptions immediately, before you begin your Astronomy unit. Students will use spacial reasoning and modeling to learn that the events that formed the Big Bang occurred at the beginning of time, the Solar System was formed billions of years later, and that humans have been on Earth for very little time.
I've used this activity with my own students for years and nothing has helped them through their misconceptions better!
