*The work sheets are differentiated three ways and coloured coded to help you in class. I used the lesson for an interview so it is only 30 minutes but could be extended for children to make their own shape puzzles for each other to solve.The final lesson in this series puts their shape problem-solving skills to the test as they use tangrams to create a variety of shapes and pictures.We're qualified primary teachers with extensive classroom experience. That's why we try to give you as much as we can with every teaching pack – to help you and make life easier. We know how much time teachers spend on preparation and assessment. It only takes a moment to sign up with Plan Bee and start downloading, so you can claim back a bit more You time!*
