\$0.99 or Free on Plus | 1 page (PDF)|Grades: 2 - 6

A set of 36 tangram task cards separated into three levels, along with two tangram cut-out templates.

Use this resource when exploring geometric shapes and their properties with the students. This resource includes three difficulty levels for the construction of tangram shapes:

• Individual shapes and hues
• Individual shapes in black
• Silhouette only in black

This resource also contains two tangram templates for cutting out which relate to the different levels.

#### NSW Curriculum alignment

• MA2-15MG

Two-Dimensional Space - manipulates, identifies and sketches two-dimensional shapes, including special quadrilaterals, and describes their features

• MA2-16MG

Angles - identifies, describes, compares and classifies angles

• MA2-17MG

Position - uses simple maps and grids to represent position and follow routes, including using compass directions

• MA2-16MG

Angles - identifies, describes, compares and classifies angles

• MA2-17MG

Position - uses simple maps and grids to represent position and follow routes, including using compass directions

#### Victorian Curriculum alignment

• VCMMG120

Describe and draw two-dimensional shapes, with and without digital technologies

• VCMMG170

Compare and describe two dimensional shapes that result from combining and splitting common shapes, with and without the use of digital technologies

• VCMMG200

Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries

• VCMMG146

Identify angles as measures of turn and compare angle sizes in everyday situations

• VCMMG201

Apply the enlargement transformation to familiar two dimensional shapes and explore the properties of the resulting image compared with the original

• VCMMG202

Estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees. Construct angles using a protractor

• VCMMG173

Create symmetrical patterns, pictures and shapes with and without digital technologies

• VCMMG174

Compare angles and classify them as equal to, greater than or less than a right angle

• VCMMG231

Investigate, with and without digital technologies, angles on a straight line, angles at a point and vertically opposite angles. Use results to find unknown angles

Can I suggest that a B&W outline version with a separate page for each shape e.g. 4 of the biggest shape on one page, 4 of the next etc etc so that we can copy onto coloured card with a minimum of hassle and waste?

Hi. LOVE this resource but its REALLY heavy on the ink. Would you consider doing black and white outline of tangram cutouts and shapes? Whilst the colours and backgrounds are pretty and Im sure well loved, they are not economical to print teachers on a budget. Cheers

Hi Helen,
This is a great idea. I have our design team working on it as we speak and I will keep you updated.
If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
