Not only will children be using their knowledge of properties of squares as they try this activity , but they will also be putting into practice their visualising skills. Tangrams can be great to work on in pairs and this will encourage the pupils to talk together about what they are doing - a great opportunity for you to listen!
To find more tangrams on the site (many of which have interactivities), enter 'tangram' in the top right-hand search box.
You may have to encourage some children to experiment and 'have a go'.
