Help your students explore the vital role that right angles play in our environment with this differentiated maths worksheet.

Consider A World Without Right Angles…

Right angles are everywhere in our environment! They’re on our doors, our shelves, our tables, our books, our devices, our houses… in fact, we’d be quite lost without them!

This differentiated worksheet encourages your students to consider the implications of living in a world without right angles. The worksheet comes in two different versions to assist teachers in differentiating learning to cater to the needs of more- and less-confident students.

• Worksheet A – Students use a coloured pencil and a ruler to mark the right angles on the images provided. They must then explain what might happen if there were no right angles on this object.
• Worksheet B – Students draw objects of their choice from their immediate environment and then use a coloured pencil and a ruler to mark the right angles on the images provided. They must then explain what might happen if there were no right angles on this object.

At Teach Starter, we know how challenging it can be to provide differentiated instruction to cater to a plethora of diverse learning needs! While we hope that differentiated worksheets will help, we also have some more suggestions as to how you might tweak this resource to better meet the needs of all students.

• Extend Your High Fliers – Challenge your more capable students to put their creative thinking to the test by reinventing some of the objects from the worksheet without using right angles. Who knows… they might even invent the books or televisions of the future!
• Support Your Less-Confident Students – Do some of your students need additional support in identifying right angles in the environment? Our Monster Right Angle Finder is the perfect resource for checking whether angles in the environment are less than, greater than or equal to a right angle.
