Angles Worksheets (Puzzles) for Identifying Angles (Angle Names / Classifying), Measuring Angles with a Protractor, Cardinal and Intermediate Directions (Angles between Compass Points), and Missing Angles (Supplementary, Complementary, Vertical, Adjacent, and Around a Point). Fun alternatives to standard worksheets, these Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Puzzles are ideal for starters / bell ringers, early finishers activities, review tasks, homework etc. All puzzles are in PDF format. Includes a puzzle for each of the list below:
Angle Types / Names (Acute, Right, Straight, Obtuse and Reflex)
Measuring Angles up to 180 degrees
Measuring Angles up to 360 degrees
Cardinal and Intermediate Directions (Angles Between the 8 Compass Points)
Calculating Missing Angles (Supplementary Angles, Complementary Angles, Vertically Opposite Angles, Adjacent Angles and Angles Around a Point)
These no prep printables can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. They are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a math-related word to be revealed after measuring or checking the angle etc. Each puzzle contains a grid. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal a word to the math topic. Answer keys can be printed so that students can self-check. In the Measuring Angles puzzles, allow a degree or two either way for correct answers.
Puzzle 4 comes in two versions - one called ‘Cardinal and Intermediate Directions’ and the other ‘Compass Points’ for countries that usually refer to it in this way. The ‘Compass Points’ version (which follows this information page) also uses the UK English ‘anticlockwise’ instead of the US word ‘counterclockwise’ which is used in the original version.
Students often forget or avoid checking their own work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves.
The range of puzzles in this resource is great for differentiation and review for a range of groups and classes across various grades.
