There are 36 tangram puzzles in this package, a mix of figures, animals and objects. Tangram is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. Tangram consists of:
• 1 small square
• 2 small congruent triangles
• 2 large congruent triangles
• 1 medium-size triangle
• 1 parallelogram
There are several different sized tangram templates included in this download. Print them, optionally have the students color the shapes, and let the children get to work!
