Angles in Our Names!

Did you know that your name is full of angles? 
Well, you can try this activity as my 6th graders. While we were studying about measuring and types of angles I asked my students to draw their own names, then measure the angles using their protractors and classify them. Finally, students sat in groups of 4 members and compared angles found in their names (number, type).

Students learned that angles are found in almost everything around us. They also learned to measure and classify angles in a very funny and innovative way.  

I bet you are all trying to find angles in your own names.

It was really fun activity. At first I didn't believe that angles really exist in our names.
I will share this activity with my parents at home.

Very Creative Activity

I am sure that angles become now more meaningful and valuable to our students.

Keep it up!!!!
