This Data Analysis: Measuring Reflexes and Interpreting Data lesson plan also includes:

Guide scholars as they test their reflexes over several days—at different times of the day—to discover if their body reacts differently in the morning versus the afternoon. Pupils collect their data, present it in a variety of tables, and interpret their findings to discover more about their body's reaction time.
