  • Have students come together as a group.
  • To motivate the students, begin by saying that "Today, we will be learning about patterns. Look around the room. Can anyone identify a pattern?"
  • If no one knows what a pattern is, then make a simple pattern on the whiteboard, e.g. circle, triangle, circle, triangle, circle, triangle.
  • Alternate differently colored markers to make the pattern more easily identifiable.
  • Inform the students that this is a pattern of circles and triangles.
