Tangrams

 

Grandfather Tang's StoryToday we listened to Grandfather Tang’s Story on Vimeo using the Smartboard since I couldn’t find the school copy. Technology saves the day! You can listen to it here too. As new animals were introduced in the story, students used the Tangrams with great enthusiasm to create the different animals. Some were more challenging than others. To be successful students had to pay close attention to the position of the sides and vertices of the 7 Tangram shapes. Click here for a printable Tangram to use at home. You can also find larger pictures of the animals from Grandfather Tang’s Story here. Print out 2 sets and see who can make the animals faster or create your own animals using all of the 7 shapes. Which animal did you find the hardest to make?
