A whole-class game to consolidate students’ understanding of complementary and supplementary angles.
Use this interactive game when teaching your students about complementary and supplementary angles.
Print out and cut the game cards. Provide each student with a card.
The student that has the sentence ‘I am the starter’ begins the game by standing up and reading their card.
Once they have read their clue, the student that has the matching complementary or supplementary angle on their card stands up and reads what is on their card.
The game continues until the last person reads out ‘Finished’.
This resource can also be used as a math center activity by having students match the cards end to end, like dominoes, and creating a loop.
