Worksheet included in the preview. If it works, then send some love my way and buy the thing.
Students work with partner to record times that each move across a fixed distance using varying forms of locomotion-walk, run, jump, skip,etc.
Students use a proportion to compute the unit rate of moving in such a manner over a single unit of time.
Students then are asked to use another proportion to determine how long it would take them to go around the world using said form of locomotion.
