PURPOSE:
This activity is a perfect way to give your students some perspective on how fast they can actually run. Take your kids outside for a little exercise and data collection then match their top speed with animals using www.speedofanimals.com and some clever calculations. Students will use their knowledge of rate to convert speeds relative to an animal’s height.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
         ☆A 3-page printable activity

STORY:
One day at recess, my math class students were racing each other outside. I made a comment to say that they weren’t as fast of runners as most of the animal population. Then, we needed a project to prove it.

         ☆Stopwatches or timers
