In an engaging and interactive lesson from Max Maths for Year 2, children explore the concept of angles using a hands-on approach with everyday objects. The lesson involves attaching ice-cream sticks to a circle using a pin, which allows the sticks to rotate around the circle's centre. For part (a), students observe the blue ice-cream stick as it turns one quarter of the way around the circle. This movement demonstrates a quarter turn, which is also known as a right angle. This practical demonstration helps children visualise and understand the concept of a right angle in a simple and relatable way.

Continuing with the exercise, part (b) of the lesson focuses on a larger movement. Here, the blue ice-cream stick is turned to cover half of the circle. This action represents a half turn. By physically manipulating the ice-cream sticks and witnessing the extent of their rotation, students can better grasp the idea of a half turn. The lesson is designed to make learning about angles an interactive and memorable experience, laying the foundation for understanding more complex geometric concepts in the future.
