Cut Paper Plates into Angles of Different Sizes

Mark the center of a paper plate with a dot, and ask your child to cut two straight lines from anywhere on the outer edge of the plate toward the center to make an angle. Then repeat the activity until you have several acute, obtuse, and right angles. Have your child label them with a marker and group them according to their sizes.
