Use these Sortify Discussion Starters to help students reflect on their learning during and after the Sortify Angles game, and expand the discussion to how game play relates to real life.

  • What strategies did you use when choosing your bucket labels?

  • How did you decide which bucket to place your tiles in when there was more than one option?

  • How would the tiles in the ‘complementary pairs’ bucket be different from those in the ‘supplementary pairs’ bucket?
  • Is it possible for a tile to fit in both the ‘acute angles’ bucket and the ”obtuse angles’ bucket? Why or why not?
  • Which tiles were the most difficult to sort? Why?

  • Were there any bucket labels that were confusing to you? How did you figure it out?

  • What are some other ways your tiles could have been sorted?

  • If you could create 3 additional tiles to include in the game, what would they be?
  • If you could create another bucket for the game that was worth 5 points, what would it be?
