Here’s a great idea for using cheerleader arm movements for practicing angles and parallel lines

Title – Angles and Geometry Activity

Primary Subject – Math
Grade Level – 3-5
- In order to further the concept of right, obtuse and acute angles, I encouraged the cheerleaders in our class to invent a cheer utilizing arm movements that demonstrate the various angles. This activity went over so well. Just about everyone was successful at associating the angles because learning the cheer was so much fun.
- The next day the students asked if they could add on to the cheer arm movements that demonstrate parallel lines which was our next lesson.
- Tips: this could be done in groups at recess. Remind the students to keep it short and informative.
