Good ideas, however...
I think the author does a pretty good job providing a teaching technique for an elementary teacher. The main issue I have with this specific chapter is that the lesson is designed to help the students deepen their understanding of "push" and "pull." I would contend that "force" is the harder term for most students. I think an inquiry based approach would better suit this topic.
All that being said, I do like the way the author presents the information. It is easy to digest and implement.
