As a fellow Middle School/Junior High Science teacher who struggles with wiggly students I find this lesson to be a breath of fresh air. You can tell that Meredith knows the curriculum well and her students. The activities for this lesson are age appropriate and very engaging.
My only question is how do you make sure that the students are calculating their speeds right. Many of my students don't know how to plug the numbers correctly on the calculator. Are you teaching the students this process in the classroom previous to the outdoor activity?
Very thorough and well done lesson. Thanks!
