Practice Measuring Angles

In geometry we have been learning about angles and how to measure them. The students are pretty knowledgable about finding right angles in the environment, making them with their bodies and identifying the measure of a right angle but are working on learning what acute and obtuse angles are. I found these images on another teacher blog http://mamontoff.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/plane-geometry.
We call right angles "book angles."

We remember acute angles as small "cute" angles.
 We remember obtuse angles as fat, "obese" angles.

Here is a link to an angle measuring game we played in class. It is fun so give it a try!
