Product Description
Learning about motion and reference points and calculating for speed , distance, and time can be tedious and challenging for students! Spice up the process with this hands-on, kinesthetic lab activity that can be done outside, in a gym, or in a hallway. Students measure their own distances and times of performing various activities, and proceed to calculate their own hopping, skipping, sprinting, frogging, jogging, and tiptoeing speeds! They then apply their data in order to re-arrange the formula and calculate for distance and time too. They conduct additional activities to feel acceleration. The activity includes a pre-reading and pre-questions about motion and reference points. It includes detailed instructions, a data section, and post-lab analyses and application questions. This activity is hands-on, engaging, and gets your students moving! It is also rigorous and aligned to 7th-grade science essential standards. Your students are sure to leave the activity with a better understanding of motion, reference points, calculating speed-distance-time, and the meaning of acceleration! You will need stopwatches, space, and a means of measuring out distance.
