RATES AND UNIT RATES EXPERIMENTS

For our activity, students reported to the gym and performed different activities. The activities were jumping jacks, saying the alphabet, and hopping on one foot.
They worked with a partner and while one student was doing the activity, the other student counted.
Then, they answered the questions on their worksheet based on the data they have collected during the activities.

STUDENTS ARE COUNTING THEIR HEART RATES.
