Background For Teachers:
Mathematicians were going to use the number 365 (corresponding to the number of days in a year), but since everyone has at least 5 bad days in a year, they threw them out!
360 degrees was also used because it is easily divisible by many numbers.
Students should understand the following vocabulary for this activity: right
angle, obtuse angle straight angle, and acute angle.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Science—Have students find angles in nature, and record them. What type
of objects occur naturally with angles? (spider webs, tree branches etc.)
If you can do this activity outside, you can add action words like, “jump around 180 degrees,” and “spin around 360 degrees.”
