October is the perfect time to challenge students with this bat tangram puzzle!
Tangrams are one of my favorite puzzles to use in the math classroom. I have previously shared free printable collection of tangram puzzles to create a tangram binder for your own classroom.
I highly recommend investing in a class set of tangrams. They can be used for so many different activities!
I created a full letter-sized printable version of the bat tangram puzzle and a smaller version that prints 4-to-a-page.
The full page version would be suitable for a puzzle table. The smaller versions are intended for giving a copy to each student.

UPDATE 10/26/22: The file has now been updated so that a classroom set of tangrams will fit exactly over the image. The tangrams in my classroom have a large triangle with a 4″ base, so that was the sizing I used for the file.

I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet.
However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.
If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
