Place cards around the room as a scavenger hunt but with a twist! Give each student a hand lens and turn on some mystery solving music in the background to get students even more engaged!
Who Stole It?
Students will find out which teacher is the culprit, their last known whereabouts, and the method. (The three boxes left unchecked will reveal the crime. If you cannot figure it out, your snacks may be next)
Walk through of an example:
1) Look at clue #2
2) Find the correct angle measurement
3) The answer is: 134° Ms. Fox was in the copy room jamming all of the printers.
4) In the answer document where students show their work, the student will cross off Ms. Fox. Since there are no boxes for the "copy room" and "jamming printers" the student won't need to cross anything off.
5) After finishing all of the clues, there should be 1 unchecked box in each column giving you the final answer.
What is included:
- 10 clue cards (angle task cards)
- Student recording sheet
Instead of just reading a protractor (where the ray starts at 0 degrees), students need to calculate the angle by reading each ray of the angle. Use these task cards to supplement any of your angles with protractors lessons. You can use them in your math centers, whole group practice, and or in your small groups.
Check out these notes in which break down the steps to reading protractors.
Also, check out Protractor Task Cards to help students practice reading angles where the angle starts at 0 degrees.
Where is Waldo Reading Protractors activity is also a fun way for students to practice reading angles.
