It would be great if you could practise using a protractor to measure angles BUT I will completely understand if you don't have one at home. You can still work on calculating angles using the key skills. 

This website will support your learning on how to use a protractor - https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-m-2087-how-to-use-a-protractor-display-powerpoint
