Collaborative idea generation for ELT

Scale of the Universe

The Scale of the Universe

Chris Wilson recommended an amazing tool called ‘The Scale of the Universe’. It starts off at human scale, and you can zoom in and zoom out to the extremes of the scale of the universe.

What would you do with this tool in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

    story writing
    vocab: science & English

    so many cross-curricular ideas could be intertwined
    the list could go on… great find!
