Use this interactive activity to encourage students to have fun on the Web while learning about 3D patterns. Students can try this activity on their own or in pairs. GoalCreate a 3D pattern and make predictions about its growth.
Builds UponStudent Book pages 1213 Instructions for Use3D Blocks allows students to create 3D patterns and make predictions about their growth. To use 3D Blocks, drag blocks onto the workspace and then stack the blocks to make number patterns. Pay attention to the number of layers, the number of boxes on each layer, and the total number of boxes to create the pattern. Create a tchart on paper to show the pattern in the stack of boxes and then make predictions about its growth.
