I've recently posted a Sketchpad activity that might be useful for this topic.
It doesn't address tables or equations, but it does take an interesting approach
to the connection between graph, story, and the motion itself. Students can
change the story to fit the graph, or change the graph to fit the story. In
either case, they can then check their results by watching a character perform
the motion corresponding to the graph.

The activity is called "Mellow Yellow: Interpreting Graphs" and it's hosted at
http://sll.keymath.com/classpass/MathTools. I'd be interested to know what
people think about it.
