Tangrams present your students with an engaging, hands-on way to develop the following skills:

•spatial reasoning

•critical thinking

•problem solving

•understanding of geometry concepts (congruence, similarity, symmetry, rotation, transformation, reflection, attributes of polygons, etc.)

These puzzles are perfect for math centers, fast-finishers, and cooperative learning. Your students will LOVE them!

Included in this resource:

•75 unique full-size Tangram puzzles that will perfectly fit your 4-inch* Tangram manipulatives

•75 smaller Tangram cards (identical to the full-size puzzles), for adding another element of difficulty

•printable 4-inch Tangram manipulatives in various colors and black and white

•an answer key for all 75 puzzles

* Most Tangram manipulatives are 4 inches, which means when you arrange the 7 shapes in to a square, each side of the square is 4 inches long. The full-size puzzles in this resources are designed to perfectly fit 4-inch Tangram sets. You can still use other size sets, but they will not match up perfectly. Some teachers prefer that the sizes do not match up, as this requires students to further engage spatial reasoning skills, which is why I have also included the smaller Tangram cards.
