Double lesson exploring the scientific beliefs about the origins of the universe for Eduqas (Catholic) Origins and Meanings.
The lesson explores the views of Stephen Hawking, Georges Lemaitre, Charles Darwin, Paul Davies, Richard Dawkins and Pope John Paul II. The students focus on the scientific theories of the Big Bang and Evolution and Catholic responses to them. I have included information about the Goldilocks enigma as it is covered on the A-Level and provides stretch and challenge for students who are already familiar with other aspects of the lesson. The second part of the lesson focuses on the skill of evaluating and asks students to consider how other scholars would respond to certain views. The lesson ends with a D question in which students can apply and consolidate their learning.
