  • I have made the tangram base template and the tangram patterns all the same size, so that you should be able to cut up the base puzzle and it should fit over the patterns. With this you may like to reduce the sizes to multiple pages per sheet - they should all reduce uniformly.

  • These printable tangram puzzles would be ideal printed onto thick card and laminated - made into a few kits to pop into your maths centers.

  • All patterns use just the 7 tangram pieces each.

  • Tangrams can be used for great Barrier Games. The children work in pairs. Each child has a set of tangram pieces. Place a 'barrier' between the children (a book or folder standing up works fairly well, some Teachers I know have actually had 'barriers' made up to use in the classroom). The children take turns describing how to put together their chosen tangram pattern. For example first child has chosen the 'person'. They start by explaining to their partner - "place the small square in the middle of your page. Put the medium size triangle above the square like a hat, make a square with the 2 biggest triangles and put this square underneath the small square to form the body etc etc." This can be a bit tricky but is a great activity descriptions, position, and oral language.

  • Use the black and white copies for children to cut, colour and paste into tangram patterns.

  • Use the printable tangram puzzles as part of a larger picture or class mural. Children glue on the puzzle pieces and draw in the extra background and features to make a complete / interesting picture.

  • Children make up their own tangram pictures using the 7 pieces.

  • Use the overhead projector to demonstrate some of the tangram patterns.

  • Make up little tangram challenges...

    *can you make a square with 4 tangram pieces?

    *can you make the 2 small triangles fit into the medium triangle?

    *can you fill one of the larger triangles with other tangram pieces?

    *can you fit 2 small triangles into the parallelogram?

    *can you make a huge triangle with the 2 larger triangles?
