What our More About Angles lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: More About Angles equips students to apply vocabulary to angles and explore the relationship of angles and their names to a transversal. This lesson also demonstrates the relationship of angle measurement to types of angles. This lesson is for students in 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade.
Every lesson plan provides you with a classroom procedure page that outlines a step-by-step guide to follow. You do not have to follow the guide exactly. The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the blue box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. For this lesson, you only need GlueExtra paper for supplies. To prepare for this lesson ahead of time, you can obtain the GlueExtra paper, copy the handouts and other materials, and copy and cut out the pieces needed for the activity worksheet.
Options for Lesson
Included with this lesson is an “Options for Lesson” section that lists a number of suggestions for activities to add to the lesson or substitutions for the ones already in the lesson. One of the optional adjustments for this lesson is to have students write their own stories as an additional homework assignment. You can also have groups of students create posters for different angles. Students can also practice drawing angles by drawing a picture using only angles and labeling each angle! You can also have the students play win, lose, or draw with each angle and its definition.
The teacher notes page includes lines that you can use to add your own notes as you’re preparing for this lesson.
MORE ABOUT ANGLES LESSON PLAN CONTENT PAGES
The More About Angles lesson plan includes three content pages. The lesson begins with some important vocabulary that students need to know for this lesson. It states that vocabulary is an essential part of learning about angles. Some of the vocabulary words covered in this lesson are congruent, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and transversal. Each vocabulary word is accompanied by a picture, definition, and symbol (where applicable).
Students will learn that congruent means equal or the same. Parallel lines are two lines on a plane that never meet and are equidistant apart. Perpendicular lines are intersecting lines that form right angles. A transversal is a line that intersects a set of parallel lines. The lesson includes a diagram that shows what a transversal is.
Relationship of Angles
The next section of the lesson teaches students about the different relationships between angles. There are four basic types of angle relationships, which the lesson lists in a chart along with a picture and definition. Complementary angles are when two angles add up to 90 degrees; the two angles do not have to be next to each other. Supplementary angles are when two angles add up to 180 degrees; the two angles do not have to be next to each other. Adjacent angles are two angles that share a common vertex and a common side. Finally, vertical angles are opposite angles made by two intersecting lines.
Advanced Relationships of Angles
Finally, students will learn about advanced relationships of angles. The lesson explains that we sometimes classify angles based on where they are in relation to a transversal. Students will learn that alternate interior and exterior, corresponding, and same side interior angles all have the same measurements!
There are six types of advanced angle relationships, which the lesson lists in a chart along with a definition and examples. Interior angles are angles on the inside of the parallel lines. Exterior angles are angles on the outside of the parallel lines. Alternate interior angles are two angles that are on opposite sides of the transversal and inside (interior) of the transversal. Alternate exterior angles are two angles that are on opposite sides of the transversal and outside (exterior) of the transversal. Corresponding angles are two angles that are in the same place but on different lines. Finally, same side interior angles are two angles that are on the same side of the transversal and on the interior (between) the two lines. The lesson includes a diagram that shows examples of each type of advanced angle.
MORE ABOUT ANGLES LESSON PLAN WORKSHEETS
The More About Angles lesson plan includes four worksheets: an activity worksheet, a practice worksheet, a homework assignment, and a quiz. You can refer to the guide on the classroom procedure page to determine when to hand out each worksheet.
MATCHING GAME ACTIVITY WORKSHEET
Students will work either alone or in a group for the activity worksheet. They will match vocabulary terms, their definitions, and drawings that you will cut out and place in a bag for them to use.
FOOD COURT PRACTICE WORKSHEET
For the practice worksheet, students will use written information about where things are located in relation to each other in a mall food court to fill in the names of the restaurants on the provided diagram. For example, the worksheet states that the SBARRO is located at the alternate exterior angle to the BURGER KING. This worksheet allows students to use what they’ve learned in a new and fun way. They will also have to determine the measurement of each angle on the diagram.
MORE ABOUT ANGLES HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
The homework assignment has two sections. The first section asks students to fill in the missing pieces of a chart that includes relationships, pictures, and definitions. Students will use the given information to fill in the missing sections. The second section of the homework assignment asks students to match types of angles to their definitions.
This lesson also includes a quiz. For the quiz, students will use a given diagram to find and answer questions about angles. This quiz will test students’ understanding of the lesson material.
Worksheet Answer Keys
This lesson plan includes answer keys for the practice worksheet, the homework assignment, and the quiz. If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.
