In this activity, part of the Figure This! Web site, students determine how long will it take Arctic terns to fly from the Arctic to the Antarctic given specified speeds and distances. Formulas are not given, so the students have to determine the relationships between distance, speed, rate, and time on their own. Use this link to access the Tern Turn activity through the Illuminations resource review for grades 6-8.
