Colored Pattern Sticks: This activity can be played several ways dependent upon the method and modifications you choose. There are 12 pairs of sticks (24 sticks total) with exact matching color patterns. Simply find all the pairs but look carefully it can be tricky. Is it red, white, yellow or red, yellow, white? Can they remember the pattern, or do they need to continuously repeat it aloud? How quickly can it be done? Is there an organized approach? Can also be played face down as a memory game, with few or many pairs.
versatile & challenging 01/12/2023 Byjosie I decided to try this activity and I am glad i did. I found I could use 4 pairs or 8 sticks total for younger kids and all the pairs for the older kids. i was surprised how many students had trouble organizing the activity. Without assistance they just kept searching through the same sticks, not making separate piles of done vs not checked yet. The older students especially enjoyd it.
