Third graders create varying shapes from a set of tangrams. They arrange their four tangram pieces in as many ways as possible and choose one design to describe to the class. Students sort their designs according to a sorting rule they create. They use an additional tangram set to create a suncatcher with multiple lines of symmetry.
