Last week in Math, we were learning about shapes and angles! Students were exploring angles around us in our classroom, and in our lives. Then applied this knowledge to understanding the interior angle of shapes. We concluded that because a triangle is like half of a square that if a square is 360 degrees, a triangle’s angle measurements should be half of that, 180 degrees!
After some use of the protractor, we did a photography project relating to angles! We talked about how different movements of our camera can make a different angle in relation to the ground – some students even were able to make some fairly good estimates of what the actual angle was. For example, having your body on the ground with your camera on the ground and taking a picture of the object on the ground = 180 degree angle!
Students had to choose ONE object and take as many different angles of the object that they could. The result, some interesting perspectives on ordinary objects!
