This unit has a set of 12 geometric pattern cards and 12 number pattern cards (each pattern has two wrong answer cards along with one correct answer card for students to choose from). Students are to examine the patterns and analyze which card will correctly complete the pattern. There are also two worksheets to check for individual student understanding. The answer keys are included.
This is set up to be a quick review activity. This can be used for an interactive bulletin board, math center, or fun review/differentiation.

Copy all cards on card stock (or on paper and laminate). Have students find the missing card to complete each pattern.
There are geometric patterns as well as number patterns (adding, subtracting and multiplying).
This includes a page of programmable cards.
Challenge Pattern Cards: There are several challenging cards for students who need to be challenged.
Limit Answer Options: For students who struggle, try limiting the answer cards to only two or give them a clue.
Option: For most of these patterns, you can extend them further by having the students tell you what will come later in the pattern. Example: What will be the next four numbers in this pattern.
