Tangrams 2

The second half of a two-part study of tangrams introduces first graders to geometry. A tangram template and many ideas are useful for a primary grade lesson in flipping and rotating shapes, and using geometric shapes to create other shapes. References to a project using Photostory (video-making software you can download for free) from the first lesson inspire ideas about how to integrate language arts: have small groups tell a story illustrated with shapes they make by combining the tangram pieces. However, much of the lesson is focused on properties like congruence and similarity, angles, and parallel sides that would only be relevant to your most gifted learners or classes older than first grade. Select the best parts of the resource to use in your classroom.
