Bell Work

Replicate the Design

Have tables ready with pattern blocks when students arrive. Have students make a contiguous design using a given number of the blocks. They will then trace around the outline of the blocks. Have students exchange papers. They will have to figure out what blocks to use and in what configuration they must be laid down in order to replicate the design.
