Name, Estimate and Draw Angles 

In Year 4, students are required to use angle names including acute, obtuse, straight, reflex and revolution. They are also required to recognise their relationship to a right angle

This set of task cards is a great alternative to the standard ‘naming angles’ worksheet! It has been designed to provide your students with practice in identifying, naming, estimating and drawing a range of angle types. It asks the students to complete tasks such as:

  • Draw and label a reflex angle. Estimate its size in degrees and write it down.
  • Write down the name of the angle shown. Is it smaller or larger than a right angle?
  • Which is the largest angle shown? What is the name of this angle?

  • Answer key

Multiple Applications of These Angles Task Cards

These versatile task cards can be used for whole-class, small-group and independent learning.

If you’re looking to mix things up a little, why not try some of the suggested activities below?

SCOOT! Game

Need to get your students up and moving? Why not use these task cards as a SCOOT activity? Place the cards around the room, then have the students move from one card to the next in pairs or small groups. Once the students have read the card and answered the question, call out ‘SCOOT!’ Students then rotate to the next card.

Show Me!

Provide the students with mini whiteboards and markers. Show them the task cards in turn. Have the students draw or write the answer on their boards. When the students are finished, say ‘Show Me!’ Students can turn around their boards, allowing you to monitor who requires additional help with the concept.
