Tangram Coloring Pages

These tangram coloring pages are a fun way for kids to practice geometry and pre-writing skills. The pages are also designed to inspire kids to be creative.

Geometry:
The tangram is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. Manipulating the tans stimulates spatial awareness.
                     
Pre-writing:
Being able to control the pencil is an important pre-writing development. The background of these worksheets has been created to develop those fine motor skills required to control the pencil in the path of motions needed for writing.

Art:
All art comes from a point of inspiration. The subject and a few tracing lines on the background are  given to inspire your students. There is plenty of white space for them to personalize the worksheet by adding their own details and/or drawings.

Differentiation:
Included are 15 puzzles. Each puzzle has 2 options:
Easy - The outlines of each puzzle piece are shown
Hard - The outline of the tangram shape is shown

Puzzle pieces (tans):
The puzzles are suitable for 4-inch tangrams sets (printer settings: 100%). You can use the provided printable puzzle pieces or buy a plastic or wooden tangram set. I have purchased my tangram set on www.enasco.com (4 sets: red, green, yellow, blue for $ 2,20)

Extra activity:
Flip the parallelogram. The puzzles in this pack have been specifically selected for this assignment.
First students solve the puzzle, than they have to flip the parallelogram. Question: How many other tans do you need to slide, flip or turn to solve the puzzle again? A recording sheet is provided.
