Building Blocks of Science® A New Generation: Patterns All Around Unit Kit

(backordered: in stock 7/14/22)


Grade Pre-K/TK. The Patterns All Around Unit Kit includes a Teacher's Guide and enough supplies and apparatus for a class of up to 24 students. In the unit, students use assorted everyday objects to build on their intuitive sense of patterns. Students sort a collection of natural shells, (noting similarities, differences, and repeating patterns), investigate patterns outdoors, create colorful patterns with geometric shapes, discover patterns in everyday activities, and explore patterns that repeat in longer cycles of time (e.g., birthdays, seasonal cycles, life cycles). Students explore patterns in the night and daytime skies, consider apparent changes in the shape of the moon, and design a drip-drop "star" map with far too many stars in the "sky" to count.
