PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When teaching fractions, it is very common to pull out tangram shapes, fraction circles, fraction bars, etc... to give students the idea that these different shapes when put together can create a whole. However, as students get older, their perception of what actually is the whole is changing. The largest shape NO LONGER MEANS that it is the only one that can be the whole, and that the smaller shapes are only parts.

This activity provides students with a chance to experiment with tangram shapes (commonly found in math kits or math resource rooms) and see hands on how different shapes can represent a whole as well as a part. Complete this lesson whole group, or set up in a math center for individual practice.
