1) What is an angle?
2) How many degrees are in a circle?
3) How can we measure angles?
4) What does it look like when we add or subtract angles?
5) What kind of things can angles help us in the real world?
6) What are the three kinds of angles?
Pencils and erasers
Before entering the world practice sketching and measuring an angle on graph paper with a protractor. Once the students feel comfortable with the process have them enter the world in pairs. Have them sketch a right angle, an obtuse angle, and an acute angle.
1) Sketch and Measure Angles
Students will enter the world in pairs and work together to observe, sketch, measure and build six angles.
2) Build and Measure Angles
Students will build an angle and measure their partners angles.
3) Add and Subtract Angles
Students will observe models that show angles being added and subtracted in Minecraft and answer the NPC’s questions about the angles.
4) Design Challenge
Students will design and execute a plan to build a bridge that a boat can sail under. The river will be 40 meters long and the bridge must be at least 7 meters high and the student must know at what angles to build their bridge.
1) The student was able to stretch Minecraft angles on graph paper and measure them with a protractor.
2) The student was able to add and subtract angles.
3) The student was able to make a design and execute a plan for a bridge that a boat can sail under. The student must be able to determine the angle of their bridge.
4) able to identify right, obtuse, and acute angles.
5) The student was able to achieve a score of 2 or higher when the “You Got It!” score is subtracted from the Not Yet Score for each standard
