Introduce elementary students to the concept of functions by investigating growing patterns. Visual patterns formed with manipulatives are especially effective for elementary students and allow them to concretely build understanding as they first reproduce, then extend the pattern to the next couple of stages.

In this math lesson, learners investigate fractions by playing a game. To play, learners roll two dice and create a fraction, using the larger number rolled as the denominator and the smaller number as the numerator. Learners then build that fractional amount on the game mat with pattern block pieces. The winner is the player who builds the greatest number of hexagons. Less

In this math activity, learners use what they know about shapes to copy a friend's hidden picture. Learners create a design out of pattern blocks and then hide their picture behind a screen. The "Designer" then guides the "Copycat" as they try to build the hidden design without peaking. The "Designer" can only use descriptions of the design and "Copycat" can only ask five questions.

In this math lesson, learners compare pattern blocks to visually understand halves, thirds, and sixths. First, learners look at all the different ways they can make a hexagon using other pattern block pieces. After the investigation, they represent their solutions using pictures and fractional notation. Then, learners play a game to increase their understanding of equivalence and fractions. The game can be played on its own--with or without the preceding lesson. Less

In this three-part math activity, learners explore shapes. In part one, learners identify, describe, and classify two-dimensional shapes. Learners use square tiles to duplicate shapes on a card, identify 2D shapes in the room, sort shapes according to their attributes, and use shapes to creature pictures and stories. In part two, learners experiment with pattern blocks and decorate paper bag vests with shapes and patterns. In part three, learners are introduced to three-dimensional shapes as they use Geoblocks to explore geometric concepts. Less

In this math lesson, learners arrange pattern blocks to create tessellations and to explore geometric patterns. Learners first explore making patterns with a variety of pattern blocks. They next engage in experiments of making tile designs using only one shape by rotating that shape around a point. Finally, they are faced with the situation of entering a contest for creating the best tile design for the new plaza using these geometric shapes. Learners are placed into groups and are told to use only the blocks with equal sides and equal angles to create a patterned tile design. Each group makes a tile design and learners vote for the best design. Less
