More Tangram Fun .... And Last Chance for a Giveaway!

Happy Monday! Hope you had a good one! Mine ran fairly smoothly but I am exhausted tonight. Not a good sign since it is ONLY Monday!

Anyway, I wanted to share a fun activity we worked on this morning.

I blogged about using tangrams HERE, and we continued the fun this week with this fun vocabulary tangram puzzle:

I used the tangram template from Laura Candler's freebie back. Then I wrote the geometry vocabulary words and their definitions on the tangram pieces. The kids put the tangram puzzle together with their partners and discovered the meanings of  the vocabulary words for the week.

They then recorded the meaning and drew an example of each word in their math journals. It was a fun quick project. The kids were challenged and really enjoyed working with the tangrams!

I was inspired by this pin:

Puzzles: great hands on for learning new vocab for students of any age!
