Work on those fine motor skills and engage your students in creating pictures out of pattern blocks. These puzzle work mats includes a picture of an animal built with pattern blocks. Pictures are actual size so blocks will fit directly on the mat. After building each pictures, they will sort the blocks they used. Then they will count how many of each block is used to make the picture. Students will color in the graph to show how many blocks they used. These puzzles include a crab.
This product sampler contains 1 Pattern Blocks Puzzles Activity Work Mats. There are three versions included - 1. Build the picture on a mat that includes actual pattern blocks colors used to make the picture. Option 2 includes a picture made with a black & white outline of the pattern blocks. Option 3 is the most challenging. Students fit the pattern blocks within the outline forming the picture on their own. All pictures are scaled to actual size of pattern blocks. This is a great activity for sorting and classifying blocks. I've also included multiple student recording sheets and graphing options for students to graph the pieces they use.
The pattern block mat is also in a black and white printer friendly form. Students can color their own pictures to match the design they build.
Your students will need access to pattern blocks.
These task cards are perfect for morning work, fine motor tubs, early finishers, math stations or centers.
