This is a 24 card game of I have who has. Students us protractors to measure the angle on their card and then write that measurement down. Several things make my games unique. One is that I have an answer page that shows all 24 cards on it that one person holds so that if the game gets stuck that person can help move it along. The students will beg to be the person on "loop patrol". It is called loop because the game will loop around the classroom back to the person who starts the game.
I really liked the game. I wish it did not have the cards numbered. The kids began to recognize who was coming up next. I will likely white out the numbers at the bottom of the cards so that we can play without them.

Very practical and a fun way to learn the skill of measuring angles

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Totally want to use this for my Gr. 5 class this week. Just had a question: how exactly does the game work? Once I had one card to each student, and they measure and fill in their angle...what's next? Do they all wander around the room trying to find the other person? How do they go about finding the other angle mentioned on their card?
Sorry for the late response. I'm moving to a new computer and it has been a hassle. What I do is tell them to measure the angle and try to be as precise as they can. I didn't want to make the picture too close to the same so each card should be at least 7 degrees apart from each other. You start the game by picking a person at random to read the bottom of their card. Tell the class that if they hear an angle measurement that is within 4 degrees up or down from the one just mentioned then it is you that they are referring to. The game continues to "loop" around the room reading the bottom of a card and then answering it by reading the top of the next card. The person starting the game will be the one to end the game. I hope this helps. I have several of these games I sell by the way. If you are still unsure just send me another question.
