Hare and The Tortoise-Distance time graphs-game
A lesson involving drawing a 'distance (from home) / time' graph of the hare and the tortoise cartoon (see link - if you have problems, just search for 'silly symphony - hare and the tortoise&') Also includes card matching activity (with optional differentiated version with missing graphs). (This part not made by me).

See lttmaths.com for further ideas and resources about teaching mathematics. RE 'displacement' comments: Exam boards use 'distance from home' to get around this. I have adjusted the resource accordingly (where possible).
