Here's a few you might find useful:

Ned Wright's Frequently asked questions about cosmology is non-technical and very well written:
http://www.astro.ucla.edu/~wright/cosmology_faq.html#CC
You might also want to navigate to his home page and explore from there.

Physics Made Easy is very good, but doesn't shy from math:
http://physicsmadeeasy.wordpress.com/

Hyperphysics provides a great mind-map with brief and to the point outlines of the subjects with references and further reading:
http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/HFrame.html
(cosmology is covered in the astrophysics section)

Charles Lineweaver's publications are generally accepted as excellent pedagogical material.
This one here might be a bit daunting in places, but still very accessible:
http://ned.ipac.caltech.edu/level5/March03/Lineweaver/Lineweaver_contents.html

I've found another detailed breakdown of the subject of Big Bang cosmology at TalkOrigins.org:
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/astronomy/bigbang.html#evidence
It's more from the "debunking the creationsts" angle, but looks scientifically accurate. Maybe somebody else can verify that.

Believe it or not youtube is a great place to search, just about every aspect of science is covered with multiple video's explaining the same thing using slightly different analogies.
