Learning about Angles

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Karen Westley

To develop the mathematical concept of angle, ask the children to stand in a line facing you.

Give commands such as 'right 90 degrees'. The children should follow this command by making a quarter turn right.

Repeat for 180, 270 and 360 degrees.

To extend the activity use other amounts of degree or ask a child to give the commands. The children will find the activty really enjoyable!

I used it as a starter activity for the ICT program Logo.

But for some children this doesn't transfer to looking at actual angles... :-(
