The author was a teacher for more than thirty years. The article starts with the
story of a teacher: The story of everything! For a while, we follow the story in the
classroom. But it is a long, very long story. So we leave the classroom and he writes us
about his approach to telling this story of Big History to children of the age of six+. He
calls his story “questioning” – questioning of space and time. He helps the children with
three frameworks, which is the core of the article. For the framework of space he uses the
concept of the Powers of Ten, developed by Kees Boeke. For time, he uses a framework
that he himself developed: The Lines of Life, a set of four timelines for use in primary
school. For questioning, he uses the material for sentence analysis developed by Dr.
Maria Montessori.
