  • Make sure the Bingo cards have a mix of different types of angles so that your child gets to practice identifying all of them.
  • To make the game more challenging, use Bingo cards with a mix of different types of angles so that your child gets to practice identifying all of them.

Game 2: Bow and Arrow 

Bow and Angle is a fun online game that can help Primary 6 students practice their knowledge of angles.
