This KS3 resource makes a perfect introduction to the speed equation. It starts by looking at a clip of Usain Bolt running the 100m and working out his speed. Ideal as a starter activity.

It moves to explore the speed = distance/time as a method for working out average speed. As an extension activity, it compares speed cameras that work out average speed and instantaneous speed. The answers are included.
