In this lesson students will review types of angles and review unit fractions.
Use a Square Pattern Block
When introducing angles, I give each student a square pattern block. We review everything we know about a square.
- polygon – closed shape with straight lines
- quadrilateral – 4 sided shape
- parallelogram – two pairs of parallel lines
- rhombus – all 4 sides the same length
- 4 right angles (square corners) that are 90º
We then use the square pattern block to help us complete an angles sorting activity (click here to view).
Fractions of a Circle
You can also review angles when partitioning a circle into equal parts. The following activity is perfect to complete during one of your small group math meetings.
Print several copies of the page pictured and place them into sheet protectors. You will also need fraction circles.
This is an activity I would complete with students that need enrichment.
We are still talking about types of angles, but so many conversations can come from this activity.
I’ve gone ahead and created a bookmark students can use as reference.
The bookmark and fractions of a circle printable can be downloaded at the end of this blog post.
More Types of Angles Practice
The following printable is from my 4th grade math tri-folds bundle.
I’m all about fun ideas, but some students would just get confused by looking at this. So, save this lesson for your small group that needs enrichment 🙂
