Collections of tangram patterns date back to around 1800 in China, but the game is probably older.
It is known as "the 7 tricks board". In Europe, it was discovered around 1820.
There are no less than 1,600 possible combinations with the 7 pieces that make it up!
Pupils are normally able to recognise simple geometric shapes and take into account their size.
Their skills and knowledge are therefore sufficient for them to practice the tangram game.
