This is a great hands-on lab where students will record data & learn how to graph velocity, calculate velocity, & interpret their velocity graphs. Students should have some background knowledge on motion, position vs. time graphs, velocity, how to calculate velocity, etc.(See my Forces & Motion PPT in my store for help!) For this lab, you will need to either take the students to your local track & field or find an open space such as a gym or another location outside of your school(50 meters marked). They will record the times of runner/walker combination scenarios. Students will then create their own position vs. time graphs(velocity) using Microsoft Excel(computer lab), calculate velocity by finding the slope of their position vs. time graphs, & answering post lab questions. There are detailed instructions for students to follow when creating their graphs in Excel! This lab covers the CCSS for Motion in 9th Grade Physical Science, but can be easily adapted to other grade levels! It allows students to apply their knowledge of motion and velocity, use technology to display their collected data from the lab by creating graphs, and then finding the slope of their graphs & answering post lab questions for reflection! There is also a Teacher Guide that goes with the lab for your convenience and preparation! Enjoy!
