Ghost Patterns

When young children categorize items, they are beginning to perceive the relationships between things. As they evolve in their ability to compartmentalize objects, they start to understand how things work together. In this activity, your budding mathematician learned how to recognize and continue number patterns within the scope of our ghost theme. Using buttons, black pasta, and plastic eye balls, we placed five items onto three paper ghosts, counting and naming the patterns that emerged as a result. We rearranged items, extended patterns, and described the differences we saw.
