# Recognising right angles

You can find plenty of pages on the internet on addition, subtraction, multiplication etc but it is much harder to find good quality worksheets on shape and measures. Here we have sets which provide activities to help with recognising right angles.

There are plenty of examples of right angles around the home or the classroom and one easy way to make one is to use the corner of a piece of paper. Use this to slide into other angles to see if they are also right angles.

The second set of pages asks children to draw ‘smiley faces’ on all the right angles shown on the worksheet. This is not quite as easy as it looks, as not all of the right angles are displayed so that the lines are vertical and horizontal. (Often squares are mistaken as ‘stars’ if they are shown atÂ tilt.)
