About Chinese Tangrams
No one knows when Chinese tangrams were invented, but it was a very, very long time ago! 1. Color the shapes with Crayola® crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Tip: For a sturdier tangram, glue the picture onto a piece of thin cardboard. For example, try a recycled cereal box or file folder. 2. Cut out the shapes, and rearrange them like a puzzle. Try to make different designs, people, and animal shapes. Try to use all the shapes to make each design. 3. Can you solve the tangram "puzzles" below the picture?
