Grandfather Tang's Story

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to compose two-dimensional shapes to create a composite shape using the 7 tangram pieces. It is essential that the language the teacher uses during the task is precise to support students' academic vocabulary development. For example, 'turn the square so one side is lined up with the shorter side of the rhombus to create the tail of the squirrel.' Trying to make the animals without the internal lines is very challenging, so the worksheet shows how the pieces are composed for each animal.
