Pattern blocks are a great tool to use to develop students' visual-spatial skills and introduce them to basic shapes and geometry. This packet includes several different activities and a game they can use to create mosaics, compose shapes, and identify them and their attributes. You can use pattern block manipulatives, stickers, or stencils to complete them. There are recording and response pages that can be used for assessment and reinforcement.
