LOOKING FOR ANGLES: ANGLES ON THE CLOCK FACE - 0-360

Georgia and Bevan stumble into an imaginary world ruled by a spider. As mean as can be, the spider captures the kids' puppy and won't release him until they have beamed back twelve photos of angles corresponding with those of a clock face. They are assisted by a computerised dog with a display panel which serves to clearly explain and reinforce the angles discovered. The clock face from the children's watch and a large protractor is used for measurement. A sense of urgency to find the required answers within a certain timeframe, helps keep attention focussed throughout. The language of angles is constantly reinforced in context and all concepts are very clear and easy to understand. Topics covered include measurement of angles, acute, right angle, obtuse, straight, and reflex angles, angles in the environment around us and measurement of angles larger than 180o.
