FIRST GREAT STORY: The Story of the Origin of the Universe

In this bonus video, I'll show you how to set up the simple demonstrations that go with the lesson, and you'll get to sit in while I tell my children the Story of the Origin of the Universe.  This was a special telling for me, because it was the first time my daughter got to hear the story.  She's five, and my son is eight, so you'll be able to get an idea of how different the experience is for children at different stages - but how valuable it is regardless of their depth of understanding.

You may forget to cover certain concepts when you tell the story, but don't fret!  There are many lessons that follow the first Great Story, which will allow you to introduce or re-enforce important science concepts.  Remember, we don't want to give everything - just enough to kindle their curiosity and get them asking more.
