The Pattern Sheep Collage is a numbers and skip counting activity based on the book Where Is the Green Sheep by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek.
The Pattern Sheep is a fun math activity for creating patterns with numbers and colors. Students can number their sheep 1-20, or skip count by 2’s to 40, by 5’s to 100, or by 10’s to 200. They will see the numbers create a horizontal pattern as well as a vertical pattern.
Students will number their sheep body segments with a marker and choose colors to create an AB pattern with crayons. They create eyes with a marker and add eye lashes (if it is a girl sheep!) before coloring the head and tail. Students cut out all 3 pieces to create the sheep. Glue head first in the upper left corner of a 12” x 18” sheet of manila paper. Glue the body and tail, and then add legs with a marker. If time allows, add grass, flowers, and a sun to complete the collage.
This product is complete with
• 1 blank sheep body for students to number as directed or as they choose
• 1 sheet with 2 sheep heads and tails
• 2 Colored sample sheets for students to see the complete collage, before and after
Students love to write with markers, color, cut, and glue, so get them excited about numbers and patterns.
