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.
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.
