2 Explore Fun facts about the LHC
3. Watch video on How the LHC Works
4. Discussion about the Big Bang Theory "TEST"
Question you are trying to answer: How did the universe form (according to the big bang theory)?
Option A - 6 Paragraph Paper
Paragraph 1: a) Has hook, b) Introduces reader to topic, c) presents at least one alternative theory (beyond big bang), includes d) thesis of what scientists believe and why.
Paragraph 2: Discusses the first supporting piece of evidence (probably related to how the universe is spreading apart) Include information from your sources and cite experiments important in this discovery.
Paragraph 3: Discusses the second supporting piece of evidence (probably related to background microwave radiation). Include information from your sources and cite experiments important in this discovery.
Paragraph 4: Discusses the third supporting piece of evidence (probably related to the formation of elements and their predicted ratios). Include information from your sources and cite experiments important in this discovery.
Paragraph 5: Discusses the fourth supporting piece of evidence (probably related to the formation of stars and galaxies). Include information from your sources and cite experiments important in this discovery.
Paragraph 6: Conclusion - Restates scientific position and main arguments about the theory that you are highlighting.
Rubric for the Big Bang Theory Essay
Option B - Artistic Interpretation of the Big Bang Theory
Examples include but are not limited to Paint, Clay, song, video, collage, ceramics, drawing, sculpture, photography, and architecture.
Due date is Next week Thursday and Friday (later if needed because of authorized extension)
Write a 6 paragraph essay providing evidence for how the universe was formed. Do not write about what caused the big bang, but rather discuss the steps of formation after "conception" The essay should include all the following elements:
1.Hook- gets the readers attention
2. Intro to the topic- addresses issue/problem, two sides, topic and arguments
3. Thesis- one sentence statement that addresses the topic and your position.
