## Explore Angle Types with a Digital Game

Teachers! Don’t reach for another angles worksheet! While worksheets certainly have a place and serve a purpose in the classroom, why not vary your lesson delivery with an engaging digital resource? This interactive digital activity will capture your students’ imaginations and keep them engaged and motivated right until the lunch bell rings!

This interactive game contains a variety of activities for students to practise identifying and naming the six main types of angles. A brief outline of each activity is provided below.

1. Scrambled! – Unscramble the angle names.
2. Labelling Angles – Add the correct angle name to each angle.
3. Smaller or Larger? – Sort the angles according to whether they are smaller or larger than a right angle.
4. Obtuse or Acute? Label the angles as either acute or obtuse.
5. Drawing Angles – Use the lines provided to draw an example of each angle type.
6. Estimating Angles – Estimate the size of the angles provided.
7. Angles I Spy – Use coloured circles to identify various angle types in the image provided.

## Tips for Extension and Support

We know that teachers are doing their absolute best to provide differentiated instruction for the diverse needs of the learners in their classrooms. To help you achieve the best outcomes for your learners, here are some ideas for how you might differentiate the application of this resource.

• Extend Your High Fliers – For students needing an additional challenge, invite them to create their own image to be used for a game of Angles I Spy. Students could swap with a partner and circle all the angles they can find in their partner’s image. Bonus point for colour-coding the angles according to type!
• Support Your Less-Confident Students – Some students may benefit from scaffolding materials to remind them about each angle type as they are completing the activity. Our Types of Angles Poster would be the perfect resource for this purpose!

## Teaching Angles Has Never Been So Easy!

Be sure to use this presentation in Edit mode in order to enable the interactive features.

Project the activity onto a screen and work through the activities as a class for a paperless Maths lesson!

Alternatively, allow the students to work through the task independently on a personal device. (Note: Be sure to have them make their own copy of the activity before commencing!)
