Classifying Angles – Sorting Activity

PDF | 7 pages|Grades: 2 - Lower - 4

A sorting activity to help students recognise different types of angles in everyday life.

This sort is the perfect resource for students to use when learning how to identify angles around them in everyday life.

The resource includes:

  • 36 picture cards, each portraying an object that students will be familiar with
  • 3 classification heading cards: acute angles, obtuse angles and right angles.

Students sort the cards as depicting either acute, obtuse or right angles.

This would be the ideal task to set as a maths group activity when first exploring angles.

Adhere the cards to thick cardboard so they can be re-used many times.

Give your students a great start on their journey into geometric reasoning with this simple angle classification activity!
