Pattern Block Snowflakes
Kindergarten scientists learned that every snowflake is unique and has six sections. We used pattern blocks (one of my favorite math tools) to create snowflakes. There are six pattern block shapes – square, triangle, trapezoid, rhombus, parallelogram, and hexagon. Each of us began with a hexagon which has six sides, like a snowflake. Some of us discovered that two trapezoids form a hexagon.
