The primary purpose of these activities is to encourage the manipulation of geometric shapes. The activities also provide opportunities to discuss the similarities and differences in various animals.
Children can construct their own tangram sets using the template supplied. Discussions and conversations should be held to focus on the open-ended questions posed. Vocabularies can be extended from the descriptions provided (e.g. eyelash, nostril) Personal health-related topics can be introduced pursued (.e.g. How do you keep Sun Safe?)
The PINK level has been designed for pre-schoolers and for those beginning school. Adults are required to read any written messages and show the child what to do. For more information about our "Rainbow" approach, click here.
