2.2 Speed Notes
Covers the definition and method for calculating speed. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.
2.2 Speed Practice
Students practice calculating an object's speed and using the correct unit to label their answer. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.
2.2 Speed Lab
Students answer the question "Do men or women drive with a greater speed when they pass your school?" by timing passing cars and calculating their speed. This lab follows the scientific method as taught in Lesson 1.3.
2.2 Speed Trade-and-Check
This document contains 4 word problems requiring students to find an object's speed, distance, or time. Pass them out one at a time, have each person in a group of 4 solve the same problem, shuffle and redistribute them. Then read the answer aloud and have students raise their hand if the paper they are holding has the correct answer. A quick way to see how students are catching on without putting them on the spot.
2.2 Walk to School Activity
This activity is much like a lab, although I don't call it that because it does not follow the scientific process. It is more like a hands-on practice sheet. Students use Google Maps and a quick experiment to determine what time they should leave their house if they are to walk to school and get there on time.
