- Children identify the measure of an angle by using plastic straws.
- Children draw the angle under a ramp they have built (from the floor under the ramp to the bottom of the ramp) and a wider angle over the ramp (from the floor in front of the ramp to the top of the ramp).
Help your student become a(n) Angle Representer
Activities and experiences throughout the day challenge children to understand the many contexts that involve all the attributes of angles. That is, angles have two rays, and so children can explicitly include the reference line (horizontal or vertical for slope; a “line of sight” for turning such as along a road) and the size of the angle as the rotation between these lines.
