Tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle. This activity is sometimes called “seven pieces of cleverness”. The object of the puzzle is to rearrange the pieces of a square (the puzzle pieces) to form figures (like a picture of a cat) using the tangram pieces.
- Paper (cardstock or other thick paper works well)
- Ruler and Pencil, or a Printer
You can arrange these seven pieces into an incredible number of shapes, making animals, people, everyday objects, etc. See how many you can make - invent new ones!
