Lorrie Lanterman Formal Lesson Plan April 10, 2006 MATH LESSON PLAN with TANGRAMS LP#: 3 Date: April 10, 2006 Teacher: Lorrie Lanterman Student: Mrs. Legleiter’s 4th grade class Age: 8-9 Grade: 4th NUMBER AND COMPUTATION 1: The student uses numerical and computational concepts and procedures in a variety of situations. ALGEBRA 2: The student uses algebraic concepts and procedures in a variety of situations. GEOMETRY 3: The student uses geometric concepts and procedures in a variety of situations. DATA 4: The student uses concepts and procedures of data analysis in a variety of situations. GOAL: Students will improve their understanding of geometric shapes and the language related to geometry.

Lorrie Lanterman Formal Lesson Plan April 10, 2006 right angles to each other Introduction Read History of Tangrams (Fill out graphic organizer as I read.) Hand out Tangram templates and tangrams. How many shapes are in a tangram? (3) What are they? (Square, triangle, parallelogram) How many pieces? (7) Activity Read Grandfather Tang’s Story: A Tale Told With Tangrams by Ann Tompert. Reteach (Personal computer activity) Complete graphic organizer as you work. Students will practice using tangrams to create different shapes and characters at the following website. http://pbskids.org/sagwa/ga mes/tangrams/index.html Encrichment Students will use tangrams to create a character. Then they will use this character to tell a short made up story.
