Do your students need help collecting data and making scatter plots in an engaging way? I present the Keep Up quest! In this activity, students are challenged by using a meter stick to determine if human height impacts the number of steps it takes to walk a certain distance. They then use this data to construct a scatter plot to determine if there is a relationship of not. This quest is low prep and easy to set-up!
In the game story setting, student groups are attacked by monstrous plants. They have to escape these plants by passing this quest. Unfortunately they discover one of their friends has been captured by the ensnaring tendrils, so they are faced with a choice. Do they choose to go back and brave the threat to save their friend, or do they seek an escape for themselves? If you are creating your own gamified classroom, I have included blank consequence slips so you can reward or punish groups based on their decision!
Students will be able to demonstrate skills related to these learning targets:
I can explain when to use bar graphs, line graphs, pie graphs, and scatter plots.
I can collect data and construct a scatter plot to determine if there is a relationship or trend between two sets of data.
Within this download you will get a suggested lesson plan, the student lab handout, answer key, and blank game consequence slips!
