We are all guilty of preteaching too much and giving away too much information upfront. It’ll come with time and practice!
As for this situation, it depends on what the goal of the problem is. For example, if I want them to practice modelling the situation, then giving the tape diagrams might be too much information. On the other hand, if you want them to practice interpreting a tape diagram, it might be a great fit. It is all dependent on your intentionality for the lesson.
