This constructivist activity reviews measuring angles skills while also pushing students to explore more rigorous conceptual understandings about polygons and angle measures.
There are 4 quadrilateral cards. Each card has a task set for students to complete. Students are asked to measure the angles and find the sum. Then, students will decompose the quadrilaterals into two triangles, measure their angles, and find the sums. There is also a page for students to draw their own polygons based on specified angle measures.
After completing the task sets, students will think about their learning and complete the included reflection page, recording their observations, and the conclusions they can draw based on the tasks they completed.
I’ve included full-page versions of the cards as well as half-page.
•4 quadrilateral cards + 4 task set cards (in color and black and white; full and half page)
•Draw a polygon student work page
•Student reflection page
•Teacher answer keys for all materials
•••A protractor is needed for this center.•••
Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
Although this center meets the above Common Core standard, this is NOT a Common Core specific skill! There is NO reference to the Common Core or the standard number on student pages, so this center is a great addition to any classroom!
