Stars and Moons - Extend Patterns

Teaching Notes

Students identify patterns of stars and moons on three cards and make drawings on the next three cards to continue the pattern. Star patterns may differ from moon patterns. For example, the number of stars may remain constant while the number of moons increases by 1. To facilitate the drawing of stars and moons, suggest that students use an asterisk (*) to represent a star and the capital letter C to represent the moon.
