Printable angles game for classifying angles, turns, 8-point compass, missing angles etc. A popular game board and 80 question cards (differentiated at two levels) to add variety and fun to angles work at Key Stage 2 (KS2) and equivalents. Originally designed for mixed ability Year 5 and Year 6, it could suit some other ages too for differentiation and revision. It mixes up different aspects of the topic in a fun self-checking learner-directed activity, allowing the teacher to work with other groups. There are additional challenges for the children to complete as they move around the board. All in PDF format in the Zip File.
Differentiation:There’s a more challenging Green version, while the Blue one is for younger or less able learners. A different set of question cards is provided for each game.
In the Green version, questions 1-20 focus on identifying angle types / names (acute, right, straight, obtuse, reflex) and 21-40 involve turns and the 8-point compass. Questions 40-50 deal with working out missing angle sizes on a straight line, vertically opposite angles, angles around a point etc. It should be simple for you to weed out any questions that have not yet been covered. In the Blue version, questions 1-20 focus on less challenging questions about identifying angles and 21-30 bring in turns and the 8-point compass.
I used different coloured card for additional sets so they didn’t get muddled, and laminated them. I recommend blowing up game boards to A3 for use with bigger groups.
Thanks for considering this. To add further variety to angles work, try Angles Activity Cards Pack.
