Cheechowban | The Game of Tangrams Classroom pack (24 Cutout Tangrams)

Product Description
Cheechowban is a game that I created this year, that can be used for 1-24 people, so at home or in the classroom.

The Tangram is an actual ancient Chinese puzzle, usually made from wood, reputed to have originated in the period between 900-1200 A.D. “Chee chow ban” (七巧板) is the phonetic way to pronounce Tangram in Mandarin.

Game Includes:

- 24 Tangram Cut Outs
- 24 Design Templates
- 1 downloadable PDF of instructions/games to play

Instructions: Cut out the Tangram Puzzles. Each student/player gets one tangram puzzle. These are the ones with the instructions on the bottom to cut the pieces out. Cut the pieces out neatly along their edges, so that there are seven individual pieces with no white space remaining.

The 24 cards with the designs on them (shown left) do not get cut out. They are patterns to try and follow to create in games.

Games That Can Be Played:

Race your friend: The teacher/proctor puts down a particular design from the design cards, and whoever can complete it with their tangram pieces first wins.

From Memory: Quiz yourself or others on by looking at a design card only briefly–5 seconds, 10 seconds, etc.– and seeing if you can recreate it with your tangram from memory.
