Harriet Rolfe's curator insight, May 30, 2016 10:01 PM

This animation is a great foundation for a 'mini-unit' that addresses the curriculum content - The universe contains features including galaxies, stars and solar systems, and the Big Bang theory can be used to explain the origin of the universe. The visual representation condenses a complex concept- in an easy and accessible manner. This could be expanded to incorporate the structure of the universe.
