Penguin Parade - Tangram Patterns


Basic Activity:

Ship ahoy! Come and join us on an exciting (polar) expedition. This tangram set contains 20 different South Pole themed shapes with penguins, mountains and two ships. Some puzzles are easy to solve, others can be quite challenging.

There are 2 different types of booklets, 1 set with additional activities and 4 types of puzzle cards. You can use any combination of booklets and puzzle cards you like. This makes it easy to differentiate, so it is a great resource for any age.


Additional Activity:

Meet this cute family of eight penguins: Wobble, Nosey, Chilly, Flipper, Speedy, Wiggle, Splash and Frisky. They all share the same body, but look surprisingly different.

Students are playfully introduced to the geometric terms - Transformation (Change / Move), Translation (Slide), Reflection (Flip) and Rotation (Turn) - when they give the penguin’s heads, beaks or wings a different position.

Additional Activity - Content:
- Worksheet Transformations with an Answer Key (A4 / 2 pages)
- 8 Puzzle Cards (A6 / 4 per page)
- 1 Penguin body - showing the outlines of each puzzle piece (A4 / 1 page)
- 1 Penguin body - showing the outlines of the whole body (A4 / 1 page)
- Tangram set (A4 / 3 per page)

How to use (3 options):
Option 1: Use the puzzle cards + the colored puzzle pieces + the penguin body.
Activity: Transform one penguin into another penguin by changing the position of the head, beak and wing.
Option 2: Use the penguin body + the colored puzzle pieces
