Today we got to play around with some Tangrams. What are Tangrams? Well, they are these really cool geometric puzzles made up of a square cut into seven pieces: two large triangles, one medium triangle, two small triangles, a square, and a parallelogram. These seven shapes can be arranged into a multitude of shapes depicting animals, people, and other bigger shapes. It's quite a brain workout.
Check out The TANGRAM Channel for some ideas.
Just be warned these are very challenging and can be frustrating. We practiced asking our friends for help when we were feeling a little like pulling our hair out!
Look at some of the awesome team work happening below!
In other local news, our Reporter, Lee, shared an awesome article about the Aspen High School LAX team crushing it over the Vail Mountain School last Friday. The boys rallied and tasted victory 14-11. Nice job Skiers! We look forward to joining your teams soon.
