Students love to play with tangrams, and try to complete puzzles with them.
Now give your students the chance to create their own puzzle! Given a set of tangrams, students will design and name their own design. They will then trace the design on their paper, including showing where each piece goes.
Lastly they will be required to measure and calculate the perimeter of their design in both inches and centimeters.
It is so much fun, students will want to do more than one! I also used the student designs as future puzzles for the class to complete!
