This post might be boring if you don't have a Cameo Silhouette but I am posting it anyway for any math teachers out there that need the cutting file for tangrams. Tangrams are an excellent activity to give students who have completed their assignments early and are looking for something interesting to do. Here is an excellent PDF worksheet with answers. The tangram area problem is a nice challenge for geometry students.
Grandfather Tang's Story: A Tall Tale Told With Tangrams by Ann Tompert is an excellent book to introduce tangrams to younger students. The students can make the tangram animals as the book is read.
Here is my .Studio file to cut out the tangrams for students. Yes, I know the students can cut them out but as a time saver...you can cut them out ahead of time.
