Walking the Plank

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

This is a cool math activity. Kids collect and interpret data based on a physical act. A board is balanced between a scale and a step, learners record a peer's weight as it decreases while s/he walks further away from the scale. They make a chart, ordered pairs, and then graph what they've seen to explain the relationship between weight and distance.
