Building on your child’s love for the game Minecraft™, All About Angles is a 52-page learning unit containing 5 lessons about angles and triangles: Types of Angles, Measuring Angles, Introduction to Triangles, Measuring Triangles, and Area of Triangles. It also includes answer keys, online resources, a printable block, notebooking pages with writing ideas, and more! If you loved Mathcraft Geometry: Area and Perimeter or Mathcraft Geometry: Types of Angles, you’ll love this!
The unit is most appropriate for 4th through 7th graders, but there are portions that are also appropriate for younger children.
Here’s what’s in it:
Lesson 1: Types of Angles (p. 4) – The first lesson teaches about the three main types of angles: right angles, acute angles, and obtuse angles.
Lesson 2: Measuring Angles (p. 11) – This lesson teaches two different ways to measure angles, including using a protractor (a cut-out protractor is included!) and using the measurements of adjacent angles.
Lesson 3: Introduction to Triangles (p.20) – In this lesson, your children will learn about six different kinds of triangles – equilateral, isosceles, scalene, acute-angled, right-angled, and obtuse-angled triangles. They will also learn about the symbols used to identify equal lines and angles.
Lesson 4: Measuring Triangles (p. 28) – This lesson focuses on measuring angles in a triangle using other angles in the same triangle, adjacent angles in a figure, and, of course, a protractor.
Lesson 5: Area of Triangles (p. 34) – In this final lesson of the unit, your children will learn how to calculate the area of triangles using the standard formula for area.
Answer Keys (p. 38) – Answers for the practice sections from each lesson are included in this section, divided by lesson.
Glossary (p. 43) – All of the key terms from the unit are included in the glossary so your child can look them up, as needed.
Online Resources (p. 44) -Would you like more resources for teaching your children about angles and triangles? This page has just what you need.
Free Block (p. 45) – You can print this page as many times as you’d like on cover or card stock paper, then your child can do some real building with Minecraft™-like blocks!
Notebooking pages (p. 46) – Several notebooking pages are included, along with some ideas for integrating writing with this unit.
