# Geometry (angles): Leafy Angles

## Challenge level ⭐

(designed for children with prior knowledge of the Year 3 programme of study)

**Learning Objective**

We are learning how to solve a natural world problem by using and applying our skills and knowledge of geometry and angles.

**Useful prior knowledge:**

- To identify right angles
- To identify acute and obtuse angles as less than or greater than a right angle

## Clip Description

In nature, angles are present everywhere. They can be seen between the tentacles of a snail and the veins of a leaf.

In this fascinating clip, we are transported to the Alladale Wilderness Reserve in the Scottish highlands. You’ll see colourful hills and glistening rivers that are teeming with wildlife. **As you watch the clip, make a mental note of the different places that angles can be seen. Where is the largest angle?**

## Quick Whiteboard Challenge

A right angle is a special type of angle that has a size of 90 degrees.

Look around you.

** Can you find some examples of right angles?**
