Kindergarten Patterns Activity
I used this activity with my kinder class and they loved learning about each symbol and then making their own patterns. Students were able to discuss with friends and name symbols and the pattern structure. It caters for all learning abilities as students can really use their imagination to come up with some very clever patterns. You could even extend them by getting the students to design their own Aboriginal symbols to use in their patterns.
