In this lab students will work in cooperative groups to measure and record the time it takes each of them to walk 5 meters and use that data to calculate speed. This lab is a good introduction to using the speed formula in real life. This is my first lab in the motion unit.
Students will record their data in a table and after 5 trials also calculate average speed. Next students will graph their data and answer analysis questions (provided).
This lab can be adapted for younger or older students depending on level and ability.
