One of the other teachers on my team offered to let me use her tangrams with my 4th grade class. Problem? I don't know how to use them! How is this possible...I'm not sure? (Everyone loves tangrams!) I've never been a spatial-visual person and am horrible with geometry type math. I remember using tangrams when I was a kid in school, but I never understood what they were for or what we were supposed to be doing! I know they are a hot education item that's been around forever, but can anyone explain to me what exactly they are for and how you would lead a lesson with them? Thanks so much. I'm almost embarassed to even ask!
