Product Description
An excellent hands-on activity where students measure the speed of very interesting moving objects. These objects include sinking marbles in different viscous liquids, spinning balls, balls exiting from ramps, dominos, and slinky waves. The result table for the activity is provided and can be a stand-alone assignment or incorporated into student’s lab notebooks. This resource also contains notes for document cameras as well as a link to an instructional video that shows the record for the land speed record. No speed bumps here!

For students that finish early, there is a speed worksheet that contains word questions as well as a time-distance graph. This could also serve as a nice homework assignment. Answer key included.

Finally, there is a student graphing assignment where the motion of two swimmers over a 60 minute workout is plotted. Custom graph paper is provided with and without the axis labeled so you can differentiate the assignment.
