# An AMAZ-ing Adventure!

## Overview

Students read the book Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland by Cindy Neuschwander in Storia from INFOhio. Students will explore the geometry terms and practice using basic geometry skills described in the text.

**Assessment**

Storia includes reports on the length of time that students spend reading, highlighting, note taking and an eBook quiz at the end. It also includes a messaging feature you can use to provide students with expectations and feedback. For a more extensive assignment such as creating a maze, use a rubric to create an accurate snapshot of student proficiency. Use this link Assessment and Rubrics to develop a rubric for your students.

# Read the book Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland by Cindy Neuschwander in Storia.

Assign students to read the book Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland by Cindy Neuschwander. Ask students to use the highlight tools to highlight the word angle(s) each time it appears in the text and the note tool to take notes or record questions. Have them complete the eBook test at the end.

- Read the book Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland by Cindy Neuschwander in Storia.
- Use the highlight tool to highlight the word angle(s) each time it appears in the text. Use the note tool to take notes or record questions.
- Complete the eBook test at the end.

# Draw an example of the geometry terms mentioned in the text.

Share the story with the students in class with a close reading. Have students make observations or ask questions on their own. Point out the math terms and concepts in the story. Ask students to draw an example of the different geometry terms in the text and write their own explanation of the work (right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle, straight angle, parallel lines, perpendicular lines).

- Draw an example of the different geometry terms in the text and write your own explanation of the work (right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle, straight angle, parallel lines, perpendicular lines).

# Use a protractor to measure angles.

Discuss the medallion and how it represents a protractor. Demonstrate how to use a protractor to measure degrees in a circle. Give each student a paper protractor and have them practice measuring angles in the classroom.

- Use a protractor to measure angles you find in the classroom. How many angles can you find? Record them on your paper.

# Create an AMAZ-ing maze.

Create an AMAZ-ing maze like the one Radius had to conquer on his quest to rescue King Lell. Each student must create a maze incorporating all the different types of angles and geometry terms used in the text. Assign each student one of the 4 mazes below.

Using graph paper, begin creating the maze by using parallel lines to create the path to follow. (Alternative: Use Legos, blocks, or another type of manipulative to create the maze.) Assign each student a list of angles to incorporate into the maze. Make a path from start to finish that includes the exact number of angles. Students must include 1 or 2 wrong paths to make the maze challenging. There can be only one correct path through the maze.

- Maze 1: 5 right angles and 2 acute angles
- Maze 2: 8 right angles and 3 acute angles
- Maze 3: 4 right angles and 6 acute angles
- Maze 4: 6 right angles and 2 acute angles

Create an AMAZ-ing maze like the one Radius had to conquer on his quest to rescue King Lell. You may use graph paper or blocks.

- Begin your maze using parallel lines to create the path to follow.
- There can only be one correct path through the maze, but you should include 1 or 2 wrong paths to make the maze challenging.
- Your maze must include the following:
- Maze 1: 5 right angles and 2 acute angles
- Maze 2: 8 right angles and 3 acute angles
- Maze 3: 4 right angles and 6 acute angles
- Maze 4: 6 right angles and 2 acute angles
