clear and simple to follow
Material is presented in a clear and easy to follow manner. I did come away with ideas on how I can change up my lessons to get students thinking more. The comparisons to Mars were interesting.

Nice Overview with Great Teaching Suggestions
Very easy to follow and straight-forward review of atomic structure and forces associated with atoms. The hands-on activity suggestions are great. A wonderful gem is the inclusion of additional resources to help student's overcome misconceptions (in the pedagogical implications section).

No (Mitten) Problem with This Probe!
This probe is outstanding to address the need for heat source. Be careful of showing the illustration (thermometer bulb pointing out instead of in). I would recommend removing the illustration and replacing it with your own set up, then let students conduct the experiment themselves. Outstanding for creating discourse. Have students experiment with hats and scarves too!
