Shape Activity using Literature

This is a great introductory lesson to shapes.
  • Read the book, "Grandfather Tang's Story"
  • Give each student a bag with the following 7 tangrams
  • Challenge the students to make a square out of those tangrams

Preparation: I printed the tangram square design on card-stock, laminated and cut the pieces out.  I numbered the pieces on the back (so they will not get mixed-up), and placed them in baggies labeled with the #.  I made a class set.
