In an effort to introduce my students to patterns right from the very start of the school year, I created this Pattern Puzzle Freebie.
Basically, students will be given a large 10x10 grid resembling a 100's chart and 15 puzzle pieces. Each puzzle piece contains pictures of back to school supplies. Students will then assemble the coded 100's chart by discovering all the patterns that are present.
This activity is not only a great ice breaker, but a wonderful way to teach students the Power of Patterns. This activity can be used as independent work, center activity, group work, peer work, fun homework, beginning of the year ice breaker... just to name a few ideas!
I know your kiddos are going to LOVE this!
