Do you want to use pattern blocks to promote creative thinking to count coins or add money in decimal form? Using these pattern block activity cards, students use their blocks to create a monster. A value is assigned for each block. A constructed response is provided for students to explain mathematical thinking after determining their monster's value. This activity is a great way to foster analyzing skills!
As more creative thinking products are created, they will be added to the bundle. My goal is to add one creative thinking task per month until it reaches 12.
