Teachers Network: Adaptor Grants: Tantalizing Tangrams
Adapted By:
Judy Ng

Judy Ng is now in her 10th year of teaching.

P.S. 124
New York, NY
Principal: Alice Hom


Modifications


I found that my students had a difficult time describing how a particular puzzle was formed using the number of degrees for a certain rotation.   I modified it by having the students use language they were familiar with to describe the puzzle that they created.

Instructional Objectives


Students Will:

  • Write a folktale
  • Learn the mathematical vocabulary in the unit
  • Explore the tangram puzzle and creating their own puzzle

Technology Integration

The students became more familiar with the tangram pieces by using the enchantedmind website.


Assessment


I assessed my students through class participation and writing pieces.

Tips for Teachers


Some of the vocabulary is difficult for 3rd graders to understand, modifications might be needed.
