Using a Protractor
Help your students master the basics of using a protractor with our free worksheet, Using a Protractor. Designed for year 3, year 4, year 5, and year 6 students, this worksheet provides a gentle introduction to measuring angles, allowing students to build their skills with confidence. It’s perfect for beginners and a fantastic resource for any maths classroom.
What’s Inside the Using a Protractor Worksheet?
The worksheet includes 8 different angles, each carefully positioned under a protractor image. The protractors are lined up perfectly with the angles, showing students how angles should be aligned when measuring. This setup eliminates the challenge of lining up the protractor and angle, allowing students to focus solely on reading the measurements. Key features include:

8 different angles to measure.

Protractors already aligned with each angle.

Space provided to record each angle’s measurement.
A First Step to Understanding Protractors
Learning to use a protractor can be tricky for students who are just starting, and this worksheet offers an ideal first step. By showing how angles should be positioned, students can concentrate on reading the protractor accurately without the added stress of aligning everything themselves. This approach helps build familiarity with how protractors work and sets the foundation for future learning.
Simplifying Angle Measurement for Young Learners
This worksheet simplifies the process of measuring angles, making it accessible to younger students in year 3 and year 4 while still being a valuable practice tool for older students in year 5 and year 6. Benefits of using this resource include:

Focus on reading measurements without alignment challenges.

Builds confidence and understanding of protractor use.

Prepares students for more complex angle measurement tasks.
Perfect for Introducing Protractors in the Classroom
Teachers can use the Using a Protractor worksheet during geometry lessons to introduce students to measuring angles. It’s especially useful in a wholeclass setting where students can observe the correct alignment of protractors and angles before trying it themselves. This resource is also excellent for:

Oneonone support.

Small group practice sessions.

Extra help for students needing more guidance.
Building Skills for Accurate Angle Measurement
