Using ActivInspire to Explore Patterns

Margot Meijer, an MID teacher at Charles G Fraser, co-planned and co-taught an introductory lesson on patterning with Itinerant Resource Teacher Andrea Statton.  Ms. Meijer wanted her students to be able to identify that patterns repeat, have a core and that patterns are predictable. For this lesson, students were focusing on patterns involving shape and colour.  Ms. Meijer also wanted to create a lesson that utilized more technology to promote student engagement and to demonstrate student learning.

Using ‘dual user’ in ActivInspire, students are able to work together to create a colour pattern.
