## Explore Angles in the Environment

Angles are everywhere in our environment! In the primary maths curriculum, the right angle is the measure to which all other angles are compared. Students are required to describe the angles they interact with as either smaller or larger than a right angle.

This differentiated worksheet encourages your students to be angle detectives by locating and recording examples of angles that are less than, greater than and equal to a right angle in an environment that is familiar to them, eg. classroom, playground. 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 write the location of the angle found, e.g. corner or a desk. They then tick whether the angle found is less than, equal to or more than a right angle.
• Worksheet B – Students draw a picture of the item on which the angle was found and use a coloured pencil to indicate the angle on their drawing. They then tick whether the angle found is less than, equal to or more than a right angle.

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 reflect on the types of angles they found, and where they were located. Have them prepare a report that summarises their finding to share with the rest of the class.
• 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.
