BBC Squirt the Dog - Keeps it Simple and Fun

Squirt the Dog is an excellent interactive from the BBC schools website that teaches angles.  What keeps it simple is the fact that students can read, manipulate, answer challenges that support critical thinking, and take quizzes on the material. 
The web layout is easy to understand and teachers can choose the type of activity that meets the objective of the lesson.  I appreciate the creativity and I think students will want to figure out the correct angle to squirt the dog.  When you open the site, you will see the html code at the bottom of the screen.  You can copy and paste the code into your website or a blog.  It's very easy and exactly what I did here.

This is the screen you see on the shape, space and measuring activities provide opportunity for plan, reading and the quiz.

The activities are from the UK BBC - KS2 Bitesize website.  I encourage you to check out the material that will engage your students while teaching basic math, problem solving and critical thinking.
