Product Description
Don't be vexed by the "hex".

The hexagon is often a "toughie" shape for students to learn.

I think one of the reasons, is that you really don't see that shape too often in "real life".

A fun way to give children more practice with hexagons, is by using pattern blocks.
Have them count the pieces, stack them, pattern with them etc.

One afternoon while I was designing some pattern block activities, I noticed that I could make a hexagon using other pattern blocks, which led me to creating this challenge.

While your students are playing with the pattern blocks, challenge them to use the various pieces to see how many ways they can make the hexagon shape.

I putzed 'til I created a dozen arrangements, and have included a full-color, as well as a black & white template (filled in with lines, plus blank) for them to place pattern pieces on.

Later, after they've created some patterns, turn it into a "Speed" game; set a timer and see who can make the most hexagons before it rings.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy this activity.
