After realizing that my students were getting the hang of reading a protractor when the angle was lined up on the guideline, I gave them angles not lined up and quickly realized they needed much more practice with this skill. So, I created this product!
All protractors have angles that begin on random intervals such as 30° and the other ray is on 65° so students need to use higher level thinking skills to find the actual measure of the angle. Students will also have to use a protractor to create their own angles when one ray is already present and then draw angles of various degrees.
This document includes: 1 poster explaining how to read a protractor when one of the rays is not lined up on the guideline and 10 activity sheets aligned to this specific skill. There are also answer keys for activities that apply.
Perfect for homework, centers, whole class instruction and even as an assessment tool!
*Reminder: all activities focus on the specific part of the standard where students need to find angle measures when the rays are not already on zero!
These sheets are aligned to TEK 4.7C and 4.7D and CCSS 4.MD.C.6
