Review Interior Angles with a Digital Game! 

Teachers! Don’t reach for another shapes 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 detective-themed interactive game contains a variety of activities for students to practice identifying and classifying the interior angles of regular shapes. A brief outline of each activity is provided below.

  1. Which Angle? – Sort the shape polaroids into the correct case files based on interior angle type.
  2. Which Shape? – Read the clues, then move the key to cover the shape being described.
  3. Find the Pairs – Make pairs by matching the regular shape with its interior angle description.
  4. This or That? – Identify the correct shape to match the description.

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 an anchor chart for a regular shape of their choosing. The anchor chart should include information such as number of sides, number of angles, sum of all interior angles, size of each interior angle.
  • Support Your Less-Confident Students – Some students may benefit from scaffolding materials to assist them while completing the activity. Provide examples of each polygon with the interior angles labeled.
