Lesson Plan Details
1 hour
Students will take pictures and create a slide presentation showing obtuse, acute and right angles.
Digital cameras; iMovie or a similar photo program

Prior to instruction, the teacher needs to make sure cameras are prepared for student use.


In this lesson, the teacher will teach students the difference between obtuse, acute and right angles.

Students will then go on a search for these angles throughout the school and take pictures of angles they find.

Then, they will upload their pictures to iMovie and sort them into three categories.  They will create a slide with a title for each section, and display the pictures for each category following the title.

Students will share these presentations with the class.


I will view the final slideshow presentations.
