Right Angles

Monday, February 23, 2015

We did a quick review of right angles today in math class.  The kids really enjoyed writing their names using only right angles.  Some of the letters like "K" and "R" were a bit tricky.  This activity was one of the things I had them do while at the Teacher Table during math rotations.

For a quick wrap-up at the end of class I sent the kids off in pairs to find examples of right angles around the school. They took photos with the iPad and used the PicCollage app to show their understanding. 

Here are a few examples:

I liked how this group drew the arrows to point out the right angle in each picture.

I thought this group's title in the shape of a right angle was a clever addition.

This group used their hand to form the right angle shape for a lot of their photos.

Overall, it was a simple enough activity to do in the last 10 minutes of class.  The students were thrilled (like always) to use the iPads and while they were hunting for right angles, I was able to do a quick assessment of who "got it" and who didn't.
