Tangrams are a great tool for introducing composite shapes to second-grade students. Tangrams are a set of seven flat geometric pieces that can be arranged to form a square. The pieces, called tans, are put together to create various shapes and figures.

A tangram set has seven pieces: two large triangles, one medium triangle, two small triangles, one square, and one parallelogram.

Students can spend some time rearranging the pieces to create different composite shapes. This not only reinforces the concept of composite shapes but also enhances spatial awareness, problem-solving skills, and creativity in students.

Have a look at this video if you need to learn how to use the tangram pieces to create composite shapes.
