I like this!

A great addition to the packs available. I intend to use it at one of my outdoor summer workshops with mixed age children. Will be good for teamwork, collaboration and to develop a deeper understanding of shape. The younger children will probably “play” with the shapes (and incidentally learn a great deal but I won’t tell them that until afterwards!). For the older children, the information provided will be a wonderful extension of their understanding and therefore makes this pack useful across the age range. You have saved me HOURS of preparation once again and I’m sure the children will love the activities - THANK YOU!

I like it! I mean, I have seen tangrams used before, they were using them in the maths club at my school just last week. But now, if I ever decide to teach a lesson on tangrams, I am VERY well equipped. I'm genuinely impressed by the quality here. It's not just rabbits and foxes and so on - the tangram examples are really varied and interesting, the guide is most informative. It takes the "do a pretty maths jigsaw" idea and really expands on it into a seriously good series of lessons. Thanks!
