Tangram

Do you use Tangram games in the classroom? 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.

This game practices spatial awareness, geometric concepts, problem solving, shapes and mathematical concepts like symmetry and congruency.

I created 3 different Tangram sets which you can use in the classroom or at home:
