Today, D. Mumford's Kindergarteners and Mr. Beale's 5th graders met for their Buddies visit. They watched the video, A Sage's Journey - The Story of Tangrams! This video is based on a children's book about the origin of tangrams. It is the story of the sage whose task was to bring the glass square over the mountains, the desert, and the river for the Emperor's palace. Unfortunately, he falls down the mountain and breaks the square in 7 pieces. The Emperor gets annoyed, but when the sage tells the Emperor that he can make so many things with the broken pieces(the sage had made a boat to cross the water, and a camel to cross the desert, etc.), the Emperor forgets all about getting mad at him as he is too busy playing!
