Just draw any two straight lines that intersect each other. You can use a ruler for that.

There are four angles formed. Any two of the angles are either next to each-other (adjacent), or across from each-other (vertical).

Adjacent angles are like two angles in a triangle. notice that each angle in a triangle shares a side of the triangle and also is next to both of the other triangle's angles. Adjacent means next to.

vertical angles form an X where the angle parts are joined where the two lines cross...i.e. their vertices are that point where the two lines cross. You can think of the straight lines that create the X as being 'rays' if you like
