Radar Run

Students Groups of 5

Equipment 1 radar gun or stop watch and 4 marker cones

Area Large open space


By collecting 4 marker cones, use two cones together on one side and the other 2, 15-20 meters away. Students stand in lines and sprint the set distance whilst the radar gun/stop watch records their speed/time. Comparisons can be made between recorded times and technique variations. For example: straight arm versus bent arm sprinting.


Record times for students and during a maths lesson students can calculate their running speed
