Playing with Patterns

What is a pattern?
Where can we find patterns in our world?
How do you predict what might come next in a pattern?
What are some different ways we can group objects?

Student can create a repeating pattern and explain the attributes used. He can identify the repeating part of the pattern and extend it.

Recognize, copy and extend simple patterns of sounds, colors, shapes, textures and numbers. Identify patterns in poetry, art, music, body movement and physical environment. Make comparisons and describe qualitative and quantitative changes of a given pattern (more, less, longer, one more,…)

Use small objects (paperclip, small toys) to imprint a pattern into playdough.
