Description: Tangrams are an important STEM skill. Tangrams teach kids about spatial relationships. They help kids learn geometric vocabulary, develop strong problem solving skills, and enhance creativity. This deck is a short story and features 20 winter themed tangrams. On each card, the story continues and the student is shown a black template so they can match the colored shapes to the template. The shapes can not be turned so they will fit perfectly as they are presented. Check out my other seasonal tangram decks in my store!
