Right Foot/Left Foot

In this activity (2nd on the page), learners conduct a series of tests to find out which foot is more dominant. In other words, are they right-footed or left-footed? Learners work in pairs and observe each other doing simple tasks like kicking a ball, walking up stairs, and stepping. They collect data to draw conclusions about their partner's "footedness."
