The children took turns to reset, stop and start the timer whilst another lay down and another positioned the Pro-Bot. They then recorded the data in a table in a smart notebook. The group used different shapes to indicate on the table the longest to shortest times. They also discussed the difference (how many seconds) between each child’s times.
