Group Activity Cards

Use groups of 3.
Materials: 24 index cards, protractor, straightedge
Pairs of Angles

List the angle measures below onto index cards, one per card. Next, give each player 4 blank index cards and 4 index cards with measures written on them. Each player should draw an angle on a blank index card whose measure is the same as the measure given on a card. For example, if you have a card labeled 25, you should draw a 25° angle on one index card. Draw an angle for each of the 4 measures, one per card.

Angle measures to put on cards:












After all the angles are drawn, place all the index cards together and shuffle them. Lay the cards face down in 6 rows with 4 cards in each row. Player 1 begins by flipping over any two of the cards.

The object of the game is to match an angle with its angle measure. Players should use a protractor to verify angle measurement. For example, if player 1 turns over one card that says 35 and a second card with an angle measuring 35°, then those two cards match. Player 1 then keeps those two cards. If the cards do not match return them face down to their original location. Then player 2 can turn over two cards, and so on. If a player makes a match, he or she does not continue playing. Play until all cards are gone. The player with the most cards wins.
