Angles are amazing! They are everywhere! Without them, you couldn't turn a corner or frame a picture!

  • How do we measure these angles?
  • What types of angles are there?
  • What is a protractor and how is it used?

In this lesson, you will learn how to measure and draw angles, and use a protractor. You will explore measuring and drawing angles with educational videos, online math problems, printable activities, a virtual protractor activity, and fun projects!

Let’s learn how we can measure and draw angles and use a protractor.

1. Answer the following questions as you watch Measuring Angles from BrainPop UK (below).

  • What is a vertex?

  • How are angles named?

  • What are some examples of angles in everyday life?

  • What is a protractor used for? What does a protractor represent?

2. Complete the Angle Word Search activity found in the Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar.

3. Learn more about how to use protractors by watching the following video from TenMarks Amazon (below). Answer the following questions as you watch:

  • How is a piece of paper helpful when beginning to measure angles?

  • How should you begin measuring an angle on a protractor?

  • Where should the vertex of the angle be placed on a protractor?

  • How do you decide which number to use on a protractor?

  • Why is it important to align the protractor correctly?

 

4. Now let’s practice type of angles and measuring angles with the following online math problems from IXL Learning, Inc.:
