By performing the Gauge Your Gait Lab, students will observe their normal gait and calculate cadence, stride length and velocity. They can then compare their results to the rest of the class and observe if there were great differences. This lab uses common, easily-obtained materials.
Students will work in groups of four to perform this activity. The student group roles include Walker, Measure Master, Reader, and Timekeeper. Task cards are included and one set should be copied for each group.
