Send your students on a color hunt and have them draw objects they see that are red, orange, yellow, green, and blue in the appropriate area of the “What Do You See?” color chart. Teach color recognition and graphing at the same time with the “What Do You See?” color chart.
The “Introductory Pattern Pack” includes three simple fill in the squares to complete the pattern activities as well as a blank template, so you can make your own patterns. Use the “Introductory Pattern Pack” to assess whether students understand pattern recognition. Pattern recognition activities such as in the “Introductory Pattern Pack” not only assess pattern recognition understanding, but also encourage early problem solving skills.
Noticing, identifying, and appreciating patterns are all important skills in life. They will lead to a greater understanding and appreciation of things around us. The ability to find and understand patterns often helps us to learn faster as well as appreciate the complexity and beauty around us.
