Are you a curious kid, always thinking and asking questions like: How did they make the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Or how amazing is that humongous rainforest tree? It’s basically all about angles. So prepare yourself to get outside to check out some of these angles.
When two lines intersect, at the point of their intersection an angle is formed. Learning about angles is important, as they are the basis of geometry.
Safety advice: Conduct a risk assessment of the site before heading out. Examples of potential dangers outside include large trees with dead or dying limbs, stinging or biting insects, sunburn and dehydration. It’s also best to be prepared by having a phone and first aid kit handy.
As you’ll be learning outdoors it would be best to have an adult with you to make sure you’re keeping safe and an extra pair of hands is always handy.
Most kids will be able to complete this activity independently.
