A tangram is an ancient Chinese moving piece puzzle which consists of seven pieces called "tans".

Why are tangrams so important?
* Children experiment with geometric concepts.
* Manipulating them stimulates the visual-spatial awareness of the mind.
* Tangrams give learners real experience with the properties of shapes.
* Mathematical concepts are explored through tangrams: Congruency, Symmetry, Area, Perimeter and Geometric shapes.

In this packet, each one of the tangram puzzles has been created by hand so that the tans will fit into them. Several resources supply puzzles for tangrams but do not create them for the tans to actually fit inside of them!

Children are encouraged to create different geometric shapes using their tans given specific instructions. They are also challenged to solve customized tangram puzzles of various objects using all seven of their tans. This task is not as easy as it may seem, but these puzzles are so important in developing strong visual-spatial, problem solving and critical thinking skills.

This tangram activity packet includes the following objects:
* a house
* a lamp
* a sitting man
* a sailboat
* a camel
* a leaping woman
and
* a duck

Although children are concrete learners until around the age of twelve, tangrams are not just for children... Tangrams are for everyone!

Happy Solving!
