Product Description
Engaging motion of objects activity! Use actual World Record running data to get kids interested in the speed numbers they calculate and graph!

This worksheet lists the current (2018) World Record run times for men and women in 10 different race lengths. Students are given some information on the runner and their times, and are asked to calculate the runners' average speeds for each world-record race. On the back, students graph the average speed versus distance for the 10 different races so they are able to analyze how the length of the race affects the runners' speeds. The graph is provided but the students must label the axes. Finally, students answer 3 analysis questions. Also included are link to two videos that are a fun and engaging way to start this activity.
