Description:

Working with tangrams involves abstracting geometric patterns--using shapes to create other recognizable shapes. This becomes a game at GeoShapes on National Geographic Kids. Challenge your students—who can solve the tangrams problems the fastest? Game: Students use logic and reasoning skills to arrange the geometric shapes of the given angrams—a kind of Chinese puzzle—and create images of animals, people, and more.
