The Big History Project is a free, open, online social studies curriculum designed for secondary schools (students aged 14+).
Big history weaves 13.7 billion years of evidence and insights from science and history into a single, cohesive story. The Big History Project asks the big questions about our Universe, our planet, life, and humanity. Students can consider our future path and be challenged to develop the skills and knowledge they will need.
The aim of the Big History Project is to help "students develop vital skills, knowledge, and a deep, enduring passion for learning."
Some features of the Big History Project:
- Materials that are easy to download, print, and share
- Lesson plans, inline teaching guidance, and support
- Custom content including videos, texts, comics, and animations
- Easily tailored to state standards and instructional approaches
- Aligned to Common Core ELA standards for 9th and 10th grades
The Big History Project is a joint effort between a group of dedicated teachers, schools, and supporters. Bill Gates is providing ongoing support to establish the Big History Project and make it free and publicly accessible.
