This story is about a boy who, when playing basketball, asks the question "Why can't I jump very high?". This question leads to a classroom lesson on gravity with explanations and examples. I would use this book to integrate language arts, physical education, and science. The students can read, exercise, and do science experiments to help them learn about gravity.
