Have you ever wondered how many steps you – or your pets – take in a day? Well, a guy named Pearce strapped a Fitbit onto his cat, Java, to count the kitty’s steps. This picture has a yellow line for each 15-minute chunk of the day, showing how many steps were taken. What do you think your step picture would look like?

*Wee ones:* Point to the 2 tallest bars, showing the times when Java walked the most.

*Little kids:* What gray number is below the tallest bar on the left? At about what time was Java really moving? (*Hint:* The 00 is midnight!) *Bonus:* Java also ran around from 6:00 in the morning till about 10:00 in the morning. About how many hours long was that stretch?

*Big kids:* If Java takes 200 steps every 15 minutes, how many steps does he take in 1 hour? *Bonus: *Java takes about 6,000 steps a day. If you take 2 1/2 times as many , how many steps does that make for you?
