Building an Angle Wheel is a great way to consolidate an introduction to angles for Year 7.
In a one hour lesson, students measure angles, classify angles and estimate the size of angles and best of all, the students enjoy the activity.
The instructions are all in the worksheet. With some folding, a bit of measuring and a couple of cuts, you create two inter-locking circles, that can be rotated to reveal different angles. The angle wheel can then be used as part of a game or for future revision.
I probably need to credit someone with this activity, but I can’t recall where I saw it (the worksheet is mine though).
