Animal Race

Act One

Act Two

  • Teacher note
    Animal Speeds

    I gave them the following, but you could change the units, distances or times more to practice that skill, or get them to search online for their respective speeds:

    Elephant

    970km in 1 day

    Grizzly Bear

    48km in 1 hour

    Reindeer

    104km in 2 hours

    Cheetah

    2km in 1 minute

    Human

    100m in 9.58 seconds

    Snake

    9 metres in 1 second

  • Teacher note
    The event is the 100m sprint.

Sequel

  • 1.

    How far will they have all got by the time the cheetah crosses the line?

  • 2.

    How many seconds head-start does each animal need so that they all finish at the same time?

  • 3.

    Who would win a marathon? Why would the answer not be the same?
