Illuminations: What’s Next?

In this lesson, students make patterns with objects, read patterns and find patterns in the environment.

They should be encouraged to classify patterns by type (i.e. AAB, ABC). They continue learning about patterns by extending a given pattern, identifying missing elements in a pattern, and recording a pattern.
