I did Tangrams....

In one of my classes for grad school we had to put on a Math Night for a local elementary school. My partner and I did tangrams. We cut out tangrams from foam sheets in all different colors, placed them in baggies, and made copies of different tangram animal shapes and the basic square. We also set out the book "Grandfather Tang's story."

Our booth was FULL as kids and adults triied to get those pieces back into a square or make the shape--and they swore we were missing a piece or had too many!

The tangrams were a hit---it did take us a while to cut them all out, but the foam was pretty cheap and easy to cut!
