Obtuse, acute, and right angles, oh my! In this hands-on lesson, students will learn about different kinds of angles through motion. Mastering this pre-geometry skill will help kids tackle advanced math as they get older.
Students will know what creates an angle and the different types of angles.
Introduce the concept of angles. Tell students that angles are made up of two rays with a common endpoint.
Create a chart of angles, including their measurements and drawings to illustrate their shape. This can be done on a whiteboard, projector, or using an interactive whiteboard. The should include right angles(90˚), obtuse angles(greater than 90˚), acute angles(less than 90˚), and straight angles(180˚).
This is will be the students' point of reference during the game.
