Today we are investigating TANGRAMS.  Watch these two videos to see how to make some of these tangram patterns!  Remember the 2D shape names we have learned – especially the parallelogram.  (the sloping quadrilateral).

1 is Uni; 2 is bi; 3 is tri; 4 is quad; 5 is penta;  8 is octa….

This video explains all about Tangrams.

This video is a challenge to make a rocket using your tans. Try and make the shape of the rocket by joining tans together. Then you can watch to see how to solve the puzzle properly.

 Have fun. 🙂
