## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. Individual tangram pieces can be discussed and compared.
2. Some tangram pieces are the same size when laid directly on top of each other.
3. Tangram pictures, using two or more pieces, can be created and described.
4. Tangram pieces can be laid directly onto diagrams to create pictures

### Common misconception

Children might not notice that the two small and two large triangles are the same size.

Lay the tangram pieces on top of each other to physically explore and compare the size of each piece.

### Keywords

• Tangram - An ancient Chinese puzzle of seven pieces that make a square.

• Triangle - A 2D shape with three sides.

• Square - A 2D shape with four equal sides.

As before, these slides are simply a guide for the teacher. Pupils should be given opportunities to explore and play with tangram pieces, copy and compose their own images and compare the pieces by placing them on top of one another.
