TANGRAM POW:  Using the tangram shapes create the following shapes and then find the areas and perimeters of each.  You may need to use your books or other sources to find the formulas for areas!

Use all 7 pieces to make a square, a rectangle, a parallelogram, a triangle...either an acute triangle or  a right triangle. Be sure to show the pieces accurately.

For extra credit:
Finally use the seven pieces to make a nice bird picture.  Use construction paper to display your bird, coloring in a nice background.

You should explore tangrams on the internet and add your discoveries to the comment section.  If you click on the word tangram above, then go to the rabbit, then the geometry section 3-5, and click on tangrams!  There you can practice!
