Included with this purchase are two separate worksheets that focus on the concept of SPEED and how it is calculated. Both sheets work perfectly as homework, extra credit, or quick classroom assignments.
1 - SPEED WEBQUEST - various question relating to the concept of speed for students to research on the Internet including: fastest ten Olympic 100m runners, top 10 fastest land animals, and top speeds achieved by various technology.
2 - SPEED PROBLEMS - a follow-up to the webquest with a variety of quick calculation problems to determine speed of Olympic runners, animals, NASCAR, and Indy. These problems are quick to solve but lend themselves to numerous classroom discussions and comparisons as you work through a unit focusing on Motion & Energy (or could be incorporated with Math classes).
Thank you for your purchase and I appreciate any opportunity for positive feedback.
