Estimate my Measurement is a fun and engaging way for students to practice using a protractor to find the measurement of angles.
Estimating the measurement of each angle before it is measured forces students in thinking about what they know about angles. Students may consider if the angle is an acute or obtuse angle or is the measurement less than 90 degrees or greater than 90 degrees. Using benchmark such as 45 degrees, 90 degrees, and 180 degrees will also help them accurately guess the measurements of the angles.
After estimating, students will use a protractor to find the actual angle measurements. The students whose estimate is closer is awarded points for that round. Students play several rounds.
