Teaching your students how to identify simple angles, to calculating and identifying different configurations of angles, can be a pretty boring subject!

But, it doesn’t need to be! Here are some fun, yet worthwhile, activities and teaching resources you could use in the classroom to improve your students’ understanding of angles.

There are often cute little comics that you could begin lessons with as a great discussion point…


Looking for Angles in Letters

Have students use a ruler to create the letter of their first name. Then, with the ruler, draw random lines within their letter and colour as they wish. Students then need to find as many angles as they can and measure each angle! Simple, fun and worthwhile!

Angle Craft Idea


Measure Angles in Pictures

We have some gorgeous angle worksheets with cute pictures that have different types of angles for your students to identify.

This could be done individually, alternatively, print onto an A3 piece of paper and provide small groups with a copy. Each student in the group could be allocated a particular angle to find, or the sheet could be passed around for each student to find one angle at a time!

Angles Bingo

Whatever you are teaching, BINGO is always a popular activity to do with your class.

Check out our Angles Bingo.

Washi Tape Fun!

Students use Washi Tape and stick bits of it all over an A4 piece of card.

They then need to find and measure all of the angles! This could be done on students desks, using a whiteboard marker!

Angle Activity in the Classroom


Angles in My Name

Using our grid paper template, instruct your students to use a ruler to write their name in pencil on the grid paper, without any curved edges. Students trace over their name with a pen, then find each of the angles in their name. If their first name is short, they may wish to use their surname.

As an extension activity, students could find reflex and straight angles.

I have, Who Has? Angles Game

A whole-class game to consolidate students’ understanding of complementary and supplementary angles.

Print and cut the game cards. Provide each student with a card.

The student that has the sentence ‘I am the starter’ begins the game by standing up and reading their card.

Once they have read their clue, the student that has the matching complementary or supplementary angle on their card stands up and reads what is on their card.

The game continues until the last person reads out ‘Finished’.

Make an Angles Display

Angles can be pretty tricky when you are trying to learn all the different types and terms. Having a classroom display to help your students remember the different terms and angles is a must! We have a range of posters that are perfect to display in your classroom.
