May be sung to the tune of the theme from Pokemon by Seigler and Loeffler
There are three angles we can see
The small ones are acute
Each right angle’s 90 degrees
The large ones are obtuse
I will measure every one
Determine the degrees
Each line or segment intersection
My protractor and me
Angle mon! (Gonna measure them all!) Come with me
A mathematical destiny
Angle mon! Oh, there are three kinds
Of angles I will find
Angle mon! Obtuse, acute and right [make angles with arms here]
I can measure them day or night
They’re in every polygon
Gotta measure them all, angle mon!
The standard addressed here is Common Core Math 4.G. 1. Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
As with many of our workshop songs, we are unable to publish our own recording of this one due to copyright issues. If you want to sing it with your kids, you may sing it a capella; or find a karaoke version of the original song (YouTube has lots of these) and sing the workshop lyrics to that; or learn to play it on an instrument.
