Game Play: Carefully arrange your shapes to make a picture. Can you make your own picture?
Game Assembly: Laminate and cut out your tangram shapes. Print one set of outline cards and one set of shadow cards. Store in page protector sheets in a three ring binder. Place an envelope in the front pocket of the binder.
Expansion Ideas: Using the shadow cards should make the game much harder for young children. To ensure they don’t get frustrated encourage them to take a peek back at the outline cards. Additionally, encourage children to try to make their own shape for others to copy.
This is a free set of tangram printables you can use for your math learning centers. Print the tangrams on cardstock and the tangram mats on white paper.
