Packet includes: Simple measuring distance lab with metric ruler provided, reading passage about the difference between distance and displacement, distance and displacement practice problems, and application lab.
Part A: Measuring Distance with a Ruler
Students will measure distance using a ruler template provided. They will record there answers in centimeters. If you have no rulers good paper lab.
Part B: Distance and Displacement Reading Passage with Analysis Question
Explains the difference between Distance and Displacement
Reading passage provides simple definitions, examples, and picture diagrams representing distance and displacement.
Part C: Distance and Displacement Practice Problems
Students will calculate the distance and displacements for different diagrams.
Part D: Distance and Displacement Lab
Students will graph a route a student takes from home to school using a ruler. Students will be able to see the difference between distance and displacement. Analysis questions are provided to assess student learning.
After completing the Part A, B, and C of this packet students will have a very good foundation of distance and displacement. My students enjoy doing these activities.
Vector lab, distance lab, displacement lab, motion lab, or at science center.
How do I use this in my class:
Students works in groups of 2. They follow the different sections and answer their question and draw the route on copying paper.
