… But you don’t have to take our word for it! Take it from Gavin, a new Elementary student who observed the first Great Lesson today.
“Why does the universe exist? Space was, well -space! Except then a cloud of hot gas and dust made drops – our stars! They formed particles that have laws (properties) that they must follow and obey like when they get hot, they get bigger . When cold, you get it – shrunk. The Earth started forming. It was hot though. It got drops of fire -you heard me! – from its cloud it was fiery with volcanoes and/or lava. It calmed down a little and (water) filled the holes in the rocks and that was the story of the universe!!”
