This pack contains two activities to motivate using a protractor and ruler carefully.

1. Impossible Constructions
This activity requires students to try and draw a series of shapes, with the knowledge that at least one of them is impossible! For example, can they construct a triangle with two obtuse angles? Why? Why not?

2. Draw that Space Ship!
This activity requires students to try and make an accurate version of a space rocket. They must draw lines and angles accurately in order for the spaceships to turn out correctly. There are two different Space Ships for students to work on, of increasing difficulty!

Answers are included.

Superb! Great use for all level of pupils and the 'spot the errors' sheet can also be used as a plenary check at the end of a lesson.
