This game (played like tabletop version of Twister) helps students practice identifying special angle pairs along a transversal with parallel lines. The following angle pairs are included:
- Alternate Interior Angles
- Alternate Exterior Angles
- Corresponding Angles
- Supplementary Angles
- Vertical Angles
- Linear Pairs
- Congruent Angles
There are two game boards plus a spinner included. You will need push pins, erasers, and paper clips for spinner assembly (unless you have plastic spinners to snap on).
Check out a video of the game in action here:
How to Play "Special Angle Pairs Twisted Fingers Game"
Students play in small groups. The spinner tells what type of angle pair to find and whether to place fingers or thumbs on it. The game is over when a player cannot simultaneously keep the correct fingers on the correct spaces or cannot reach an angle pair that fits the criteria.
