What's the math in this game?

This game is a fun way for children to practice patterning by SAYING patterns and FEELING them with their bodies. For a higher challenge, make a “mistake” in your body movement pattern. For example, stomp, clap, stomp, clap, stomp, stomp. See if children can catch and explain your mistake!
