The shape desired to be made as a target can be an alphabetic letter, animal figure, geometric shape and the like. Questions and answers are presented to you in a booklet. The seven-part tangram consists of 5 triangles, 1 square, and 1 parallelogram. These pieces may be made of stone, bone, plastic or wood.
