STATION 1: TYPE OF JUMP & HANG TIME
Students choose three different types of jump methods and collect data relevant to how much hang time there is for each jump. They identify independent/dependent variables, form a hypothesis, and graph data.
STATION 2: BOUNCE METHOD
Students identify bounce methods that allows a person to start jumping from both seated and standing positions without moving their legs and only moving from their waist up. They collect and analyze data to argue which method is most effective.
STATION 3: SPEED
Students measure distance across various intervals along the trampoline court then time themselves across these intervals. They graph results and analyze the data to determine average speed, increase or decrease in speed, etc.
STATION 4: LEG LENGTH & JUMP HEIGHT
Students identify independent/dependent variables and hypotheses. They measure the length of their leg, then measure maximum jump height using a background measuring board. Students record and graph these measurements and form a conclusion about the relationship between leg length and jump height.
STATION 5: THROWING POSITION & BALL SPEED
Students test the speed at which they throw dodgeballs from two different positions: standing and jumping. They collect and graph the data to conclude results.
