Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this lesson, students will be able to create and identify simple color patterns.


(5 minutes)
  • Call students together.
  • Inform students that today they are going to be making something very special that will be made up of patterns.
  • Ask students if they remember what the word “pattern” means. Reinforce the idea that pattern means something that repeats more than once.
  • Ask students to look around the room for patterns. (They may mention a pattern on someone’s shirt, a pattern on a rug, etc.)
