We ventured outdoors, armed with pattern-making knowledge. Room 14 students were eager to create patterns out of the things they could find outside. Leaves, stones and sticks were transformed into interesting patterns.
The class captured the patterns they created outside and were able to bring these back to class for group discussions using their ipads to take photographs. For example, veins in leaves, a snail's spirals and cracks in the tree bark.
Our next steps are to find patterns by skip counting, and using addition and subtraction problems.
