Transcript of The Tortoise and the Hare

Get your Monitor Packets from your box.
Get your concept cards from the bag.
Find you graphs of motion notes and remind yourself about how to read and make them.

For example: distance v. time and velocity v. time?
Get some paper... plan to make some sketches on scratch paper before you make a final draft.

Each student will make their own final copy.
Remember: include name and heading info!
Remember the story?
Make the Graphs!
Work together. Two graphs:
distance & time: hare and tortoise (final draft should be two lines on one graph)
velocity & time: hare and tortoise (again, two lines on one graph)

Begin at rest as the race starts; end at the finish line.
Instantaneous vs Average speed
After your graphs, answer these questions:
1. What is the difference between instantaneous and average speeds?
2. Compare the average speeds of the tortoise and the hare. Are they different or similar?
3. What about their instantaneous speeds at different points throughout the race?
Welcome to 2015!
Remember SVA?

This is a story and activity to get us all back up to speed.

With your table partner, you will make a set of graphs of motion for both the tortoise and the hare from the old fable!

Get your stuff...
Here's a more humorous telling of the story.
Disney released this one 80 years ago, in 1934.
Zoom in for a look at the answer.
