I made more Jewish tangrams—this time for Yom Kippur. You supply the story of Jonah and the Whale, and kids can mess around with tangrams to represent the Dag Gadol (big fish), Jonah’s boat, and Jonah. Do them in order and you’ve got the whole story.
I dare you to make the withered vine, too.
These patterns will get you started: puzzles and solutions. For the first set—the simple Jonah and Dag Gadol sheet—just fold the paper to cover the solution while kids work on the outline.
For the whole story set, I made the puzzle outline and solution on two different sheets. Start with the outlines if it will decrease frustration and increase the fun factor. I’m totally fine starting kids (and adults) with the solutions. To arrange solid shapes to match printed puzzles is tricky in itself.
