Challenge Level

Can you cover the picture of the camel with the two differently shaped pieces?

Use the interactive below to try out your ideas. You can drag a piece into place and you can turn (or rotate) a piece by clicking on it.

Alternatively, you may like to print off and cut out the camel and pieces from these sheets.

What are you thinking about as you try to complete the picture?

What 'top tips' might you give someone else?
