Star cluster

Teaching a class of year 9 science students about the Big Bang theory is a  conceptionally difficult task.

However at home, I immediately make  an abstract concept, concrete.

I stare at the ‘hundreds & thousands” left on the table-cloth of our kitchen table and immediately see a star cluster on the fabric of space-time.

Talk about bringing work home?!

If my students could make similar connections, I would be very impressed!
