STRAND: Sensemaking

Show Details

Have you ever thought how do I teach the concept of Redshift and Blueshift of what's going on in the galaxy in an engaging way? Come see a classic game of red light green light used to help students make sense of how these two concepts are both related and help explain the Big Bang Theory.

Participants will have a ready to use game for their classroom that will get students up and moving on a concept that can be difficult for students to visualize.
