An Anchor Chart for Introducing Angles!

An Anchor Chart for Introducing Angles from Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas!
This Is My Favorite Angle Anchor Chart!
{2017 Summer Fun Rerun}

I know it is not pretty, but the students make one at the same time I make mine on the over head camera and they take it home too! My old math series covered the angles in one day and then moves right along! :(

I tell the students to put the poster up in their room and tell their parents everything they learned about angles! Amazing! The next day they really have a handle on it and can usually draw the four main angles without anything up in the classroom!

This never was meant to be a Pinworthy picture, just a photo from my real life teaching, but it is all over Pinterest! Proof that what works isn't always pretty! Here are the steps, I hope it helps you too!
All you need is four pipe cleaners, construction paper and tape!
1. Have the students fold the paper into fourths.
2. Model and bend each pipe cleaner into the correct angles.
3. Tape down and label.
4. Discuss Real World locations of these angles and write them on the back. 
For example: The letter L. A clock face. A greater than or less than sign.
