A pentomino is a shape made up of five identical squares. Each pentomino shape is different depending on how the squares are arranged. This pentomino set from Professor Puzzle contains 12 pentominoes that form a rectangle when arranged together. Following the challenge cards, use the pentominoes to build different shapes and pictures. A very challenging task at first, but eventually your eyes will start to look at the shapes differently until you are building pictures of your own!
