Present Challenge 2

Choose one of the presents and challenge children to use 2 shapes to cover the space on it.

Use Digit Dog as a starting point:


Digit Dog and Calculating Cat have found 2 shapes to fit on their present.

I wonder how many different ways they can do it?

How will they know if they have found all the ways?

What do you notice?

Explain your thinking.


What if…….…they used more than 2 shapes?  They tried one of the other presents?
