    As if Tangrams weren't challenging enough, now you can try your hand at Double Tangrams. This set offers a super challenge using two sets of foam Tangrams along with a thick book of 100 puzzles. Two things to remember when doing the puzzles – all of the puzzles require the use of all of the pieces, and the puzzles may have more than one solution. The puzzle challenges are represented in black on the front side of the page and a solution is printed in the color of the tangrams on the reverse. The puzzles aren't presented to scale, so instead of working directly on the book you just lay out the pieces on any flat surface. These puzzles are quite challenging!

    A tangram is a square cut into 7 various geometric shapes. This set of 8 thick (4mm) foam tangram sets in bright colors can be used at home, in a co-op, or for a classroom. Mix and match the colors, separate all of the triangles, find the small square or the parallelogram. Use all of the pieces to make a large square or use with a corresponding book to teach spatial relationships. Each whole square is 4". ~ Sara

    This excellent tangram puzzle book contains 120 puzzles in 60 different animal and nature designs. The puzzles are given in two formats - one with lines showing the proper placement of the tangrams within the puzzle outline for young children, and a puzzle with a blank interior for the more advanced student to try to fit all the pieces into. There's plenty of puzzles here to entertain everyone, and just in case you don't have a set of tangrams in the house (we won't tell), they've also included two copy masters to make your own tangrams, one on sturdy cardstock if you would just like to cut them out. Suggestions for use with different levels of children also included. - Jess

    The Sir Cumference series now has a companion book. Sir Cumference Classroom Activities offers 35 activities to connect math to this book series. The artwork, story references, and problem-solving strategies found in the Sir Cumference books are reinforced in the activities of this book. Some of the activities include story mapping, graphing, mazes and codes, and making animals of the kingdom using Tangram pieces. Students practice with shapes, basic operations, fractions, graphing, matching, diameter, circumference, area, perimeter, length, and triangles. Critical thinking strategies are practiced through observing, classifying, and sequencing. Now this series has even more to offer as students can do hands-on math activities while reading books they really enjoy. Reproducible for classroom use.~ Donna

Besides captivating, biblically/scientific based facts and information, this activity book includes toys to make, games to play, puzzles, puppets, dot-to-dots, tangram puzzles, and mazes. The black and white illustrations throughout the book are perfect for coloring. The book includes tons of information about what makes a dinosaur, how fossils are made and restored, the history of dinosaurs and fossil hunting, faults in the evolution theory, Creation (in six, 24-hour days), the different types of dinosaurs and features their bodies had, Noah's flood, and more. The information is plentiful and, with the dozens of accompanying hands-on activities, students will have lots of fun as they learn the basics about dinosaur life and the different types of dinosaurs. As a bonus, a glossy, 2-page poster is included that pictures and identifies some of the most amazing dinosaurs. The book is not reproducible, so any patterns that must be cut out have a blank back and students can color, complete puzzles, and read directly from the book. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Here's a new variation of an old puzzle you've probably tried before - tangrams. Though much like tangrams, Shape by Shape has twice the number of pieces, in two different bright colors, and in a few new shapes, too. Also, they are a lot thicker than regular tangrams for easy handling. The puzzles require you to use one color to build a tangram-like puzzle in the square plastic tray, and then use the other color to fill in the rest of the space. Each of the 60 full-colored cards have the solutions displayed on the back, and they store neatly in a drawer in the base of the tray. This unique but familiar puzzle will be a challenge for all! - Jess

    Dont we all love a good multi-tasking item that doesnt take up a lot of space? So what are the 10 functions? Here we go: it is a dry-erase board, magnet board, flannel board, big book easel, literacy mirror (plastic, 8"x 10"), art easel, display easel, presentation easel with a big book storage on the back. It folds flat to store alongside a desk or under a sofa. It is made of a lightweight black plastic with flip-up extenders. They even include a dry erase marker and eraser for you! I really like the portability here. Its perfect for a presentation of any kind at church, scouts, business, luncheon, etc. and as a teaching tool. The "plastic storage case" is a heavy, clear, zip-top bag. Also, I think the light weight would make it unstable for drawing on directly, but it would be great to display art. However, these facts are outweighed by the versatility of function and the easy storage. The magnetic whiteboard size and orientation make it perfect to use with All About Reading! 18" W x 15"H x 12" D. ~ Sara

    This classic tangram game offers a fun challenge for one or two players. There are 30 cards with a beginning level on one side and an advanced level on the other side. The beginner level will have color-coded designs while the advanced level will only include the outline of the design. In the two-player game, each player will take 1 tangram set consisting of 7 pieces (2 large triangles, 1 medium sized triangle, 2 small triangles, 1 square, and 1 parallelogram). The first player to complete the design wins the card and the first player collecting 10 cards wins the game. Solutions to the advanced level are on the back of the cards (beginner level). For individual play, choose a level of difficulty and try to master all the designs as fast as you can! Game includes 14 color-coded pieces printed with non-toxic inks and made of 90% recycled paper. ~ Gina
