Making Maths: Birds from an Egg

Stage: 2 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

This egg is rather hard to draw so here is a version you can print out. Cut out the pieces and try making the birds shown below and also found here . There are lots more birds to make, so invent your own!

When you have finished, can you put the egg back together again without looking at this image?
