Reaction Time/Hang Time Lab Activity
Page 4 of 6
Now that we have calculated your reaction time using a ruler, we are going to measure it using a game called "Sheep Dash." Ideally, the reaction time you calculated with the ruler should be close to what you find using "Sheep Dash." Watch the video at the left BEFORE playing "Sheep Dash."
You can find a link to "Sheep Dash" below.
Try the "Reaction Time Self-Quiz" below continuing to the next page of the activity.
