Students create their own Angry Birds Course by using a ruler to draw different ‘scenes’. You may need to show some students what Angry Birds is and how to play, there are some good demonstrations on YouTube or you can quickly play a game on the IWB. Once students have completed their course, they then need to highlight or identify all of the angles located in their course.

This task can be differentiated by asking students to locate and label;

Quarter turns and half turns

Right angles and angles that are smaller or larger than a right angle

Right, acute, obtuse, reflex and straight angles

Use a protractor to measure the degrees in each of their angles and label next to the name

Students use grid paper to create their own golf course. It can be linked to a variety of different math outcomes, including area and perimeter, shapes, angles, fractions, decimals and percentages.

Students can use ipads, ipods or other devices to take photos of angles in their environment. Apps such as Doodle Buddy can be used which allows students to highlight the angle using the drawing tools. They could also write in the name of the angle and add their name or initials. We have students airdrop these photos to the teacher ipad for evidence and assessment.
