Do your students need more practice measuring angles? Are they familiar with acute, obtuse, and right angles, but other than 90 degrees, they are new to the concept of measuring angles? Is your math book like mine, where trying to get the protractor to lie flat across the spine makes it way more difficult than it should be for kids who are just starting out using these tools?! Then these task cards and practice sheets will help!
This product contains:
★ A pretest help to activate students' background knowledge about types of angles (comparing them to one that is 90 degrees)
★ Tips on protractor use for measuring angles (students can tape these into math journals)
★ 12 Task Cards (Some of the angles face left to help students become familiar with varied angles)
★ A recording sheet for students as they complete the task card activity
★ An answer sheet for the task card activity recording sheet
★ Circle Reference Sheet
★ Tips on protractor use for drawing angles (students can tape these into math journals)
★ A drawing angles activity (3 pages)
★ 2 Extension questions pages to challenge those students who master protractor use quickly
★ 2 materials pages for the extension questions (triangles and quadrilaterals with angles labeled)
★ An answer sheet for the extension pages
You will need:
• Protractors! If you don't have any, a Google image search will produce images you can print and cut out for classroom use.
• Laminating the task cards will make them more durable, but is not necessary.
• Printing these cards on card stock will make them more durable.
• Color printing is recommended because some of the extension activities refer to "the blue angles" and so on. An alternative would be to print on colored paper to differentiate between the angles.
