Classifying Angles (Identifying angle types) / Estimating Angle Size, Measuring and Drawing Angles can all be reviewed using these 36 printable angles cards and student instruction cards. Acute, Right, Obtuse, Straight, and Reflex. Fun self-directed practical activities and games for math centers, which will free the teacher up to teach other groups.
This packet adds variety to angles work in Elementary. The cards can be used in different ways, allowing for progression, differentiation, personalization, and choice. Print the 36 cards (which are an ideal size for measuring angles with a protractor / angle measurer) and laminate them, using different colored card stock for additional sets (if required) so as not to muddle them up. When teaching a group about a more limited range of angle types, you can remove irrelevant cards.
To consolidate or review understanding of angle types, Snap can be played, students calling “Acute!”/ “Reflex!” etc as appropriate instead of “Snap!” Alternatively, print out the Angle Type name cards included in the packet and have children play a game of ‘Which Angle?’, a game similar to pairs or pelmanism.
More able learners can combine their estimation of angle size with mental addition in the 2 fun Estimation Challenges, which involve a selection of the angles cards.
Of course the angles cards can just be used for practicing estimating and measuring angles with a protractor. Also included is an instruction card for angle drawing challenges that don’t involve any cards. Finally, there’s a set of acute, obtuse or right angles for younger or lower ability students to do a sorting activity ('Acute, Obtuse or Right?'). They’re smaller as they don’t need to be measured with a protractor. There’s an answer key for this set too.
A Teacher’s Notes page is included too.
