## Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify lines and angles.

## Lesson

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (10 minutes)

• Write each vocabulary word on the board, including acute angle, obtuse angle, right angle, straight angle, intersecting lines, parallel lines, and perpendicular lines, and draw a picture to remind your students of what it means.
• As you go through the vocabulary, assign a hand and arm movement to each word. For example, a right angle could be represented by arms formed in an "L" shape and perpendicular lines could be represented by your students crossing their arms in front of their chests.
• Have students stand up and spread out and go through each of these terms once.
• Remind students of the angles' degree measurements.

### Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)

• Divide students up into groups.
• Have one student in each group call the names of the vocabulary words and have the rest of the group members do the motion.
• Let all students get the chance of being a caller.
• Walk around and monitor all actions, correcting movements and misconceptions about the terms meanings.

### Independent Working Time (10 minutes)

• Pass out the Name that Angle! worksheet.
• Circulate around the classroom to answer any questions your students may have.

## Extend

### Differentiation

• Enrichment: Have advanced students draw everyday objects and label any angles they find.
• Support: Make flashcards of the key terms for your struggling students.

## Review

### Assessment (10 minutes)

• Take note of struggling students during the Guided Practice game.
• Check the Name that Angle! worksheet for correctness.
• If desired, an exit ticket could consist of asking students to perform a series of hand and body movements associated with the terms.

### Review and Closing (5 minutes)

• Play Simon Says using the terms and body motions created at the the beginning of the lesson.
