Re: [humanism-174] Big Bang basics

There are several other analogies besides the fruitcake that work equally well. When lecturing my students about the expanding universe I often use the raisins in raisin bread as it is baked. One way to actually allow students to model it in the classroom (or your living room) is to use a balloon. Here are links to two such activities you might enjoy trying yourself.

Try it out.

That is why I love BBC!  They really know how to word information in layman terms with great examples.  I love the fruitcake example. That actually did help! ha
