A tale told with tangrams


In library classes this past week we’ve had a very creative time reading the book Grandfather Tang’s Story: A tale told with tangrams by Ann Tompert and then making our own tangrams with just a piece of paper and scissors.  Follow the instructions on the video below to do it yourself!

Here is a pdf template of the animal designs from the book (adapted from http://www.learnnc.org/lp/pages/3805).

You can find more interesting information about tangrams from many websites, including this one.
