Great partner activity I did with my 6th grade science class
2 activities in one fun lesson
One demonstrates how using 2 eyes we have depth perception by doing 2 different activities. One they must have 2 objects touch and the other drop something into a cup.
The second activity tests a students reaction time by catching a yardstick that is dropped.
Supplies per group
1 small cup
5 metal washers or pennies
1 Yard or meter stick
The sheet includes a data table for the yard/meter stick drop recording time and has a conversion chart into seconds by the number of inches they allowed to drop before reacting.
Answers will vary by student
2 pages takes 45-60 minutes
