An angle is formed when 2 rays come together at a common endpoint (vertex).

A protractor is a tool used to measure angles.

Here are some great resources to help students learn about ANGLES.

BrainPop has a wonderful video for kids on ANGLES. After viewing the video, kids could try the quiz, word find, Q & A, or experiment to reinforce math concepts about angles. Click on the link below.
