Build an Insect Pattern Block Math

We used pattern blocks to create an insect. This idea came from Deanna Jump's Insect Unit. After the students created their own insect, they constructed a graph to show how many of each block they used. Then they added the number of two kinds of blocks together to solve addition problems.


  1. We did this last week!! The kids loved it!! They are so creative!

  2. What a wonderful website you have! I am a kindergarten teacher in Vienna, Austria and we are working on the same unit right now. I love your ideas and will try some of them with my class! Any chance you could possibly link any of your templates to your blog so I could use some of your wonderful ideas?
