Activity Overview

Once students have learned about the different types of angles, they may start recognizing them as they appear in the world around us. While many things are built using right angles, students will be surprised to find that both acute and obtuse angles show up almost as frequently!

In this activity, students will identify the types of angles in different scenes. This exercise is also a helpful way to provide context for different angles because students have something tangible to look at outside of two lines on a screen or piece of paper. You can create the scenes for students or have them build their own to share with the class!

Extended Activity

As an extension to this activity, have students make labels and start to measure things in the classroom! Desks, books, classroom materials, and floor tiles are all things students can measure or label as they start to recognize angles around us. Students may also be able to measure the angles within the activity, whether that be on the storyboard or going out into the playground and measuring the angle on the slide in real life.
