This is a FUN LAB to kick off your Calculating SPEED and Average SPEED Unit! It is perfect for kids to EXPLORE measuring Distance in centimeters or meters and then, the time it takes to HOP, Walk Backwards, Skip, Speed Walk, and Walk in a regular fashion --across that distance. This can be done Individually, in Partners, or in TEAMS-- Race style! Afterwards, students use their DATA to calculate the Speed of each of their ODD MOTIONS and then, the Average SPEED of all the Races. Decide in advance whether students may use Calculators to check their answers. This is a great LAB to go outside on a nice day to do:)
