Activities for the Polygon Pattern Cards

<--Return to Product Listing

Note: The Polygon Pattern Cards are intended to be used with the Polygon geometry blocks (sold separately). Additional activities with the Polygons are listed on the Polygon "Activities" page.

  • Place one Polygon Pattern Card in front of you and the set of Polygons to your side. Select a Polygon. Find the corresponding shape on the Pattern Card and place it on top of it. Repeat with the remaining polygons. Remove the Polygons from the card from left to right. Invite the child to have a turn.
  • Rotate the Pattern Cards so a different pattern is available.
  • Make several Pattern Cards available, gradually increasing the number. Rotate frequently to keep the child's interest.
  • Repeat, but place the Polygons behind you so the child has to turn around to get them - still one at a time.
  • Repeat, put place the Polygons several feet away so the child has to walk to get them. (Still only place one at a time, so you have to remember which one you need and then walk to get it.)
  • Place one Polygon Pattern Card in front of you and the set of Polygons to your side. Look at the Pattern Card to see which polygon is first. Find that Polygon and place it on top of the Pattern Card. Repeat with the remaining polygons. Remove the Polygons from the card from left to right. Invite the child to have a turn.
