So next week, I have been given the opportunity to teach astronomy (sadly only stars and galaxies) and I need to add some stuff to it. I could go as hard as I want on these freshmen, so what should I include?

Also be sure and mention that it's only a theory, and there are other scenarios out there that are every bit as likely.

Hardly every bit as likely. There is no alternative model that can currently explain redshift and the uniformity of the CMB not to mention dozens of other observations.
