A tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle with 7 specific pieces that fit perfectly together to form a square.

I’ve found that tangrams are excellent for exploring and reinforcing polygon concepts.

This Tangram Puzzle Pack, which will be emailed to you, as .pdf files, has 33 blackline masters of shapes created using the seven traditional ‘tans’.

PLUS another 33 A4 solution cards, showing how the shape was created.

Also included are templates to make a set of tans, instructions for drawing a grid to make your own tans and weblinks to online interactive activities.

Tangram Puzzles are fun and provide great learning opportunities for students from New Entrants through Primary, Intermediate and beyond!

Students love them - A set of tans in your desk and you always have something to do! Print out one shape for a weekly challenge and find the Class Challenge Champion.

- Print out a shape card and the corresponding solution, onto the same coloured paper for students. Laminate. Cut up the solution page and bag the two Pages together for Problem Solving activities for the ‘fast finishers’.

- Students can use a photocopy of the square template to cut and reassemble the tans to match laminated cards.

- more Senior students can follow the instructions to draw up their own set of tans before solving the puzzles.

This is a great resource for all classroom teachers but also a perfect pack for relief teachers working with a variety of class levels. Great family fun too!!

(N.B.In order to fit the shapes on Landscape and Portrait pages for emailing, the various cards are not to the exact same scale)
