About Puzzles with Pattern Blocks: Sets 1, 2 and 3
The goal of this game is to place pattern blocks on top of each shape of the puzzle until the puzzle is completely assembled. Use the colors of the shapes as a guide! Observing children as they play with pattern block puzzles is a great way to see their spatial reasoning skills develop. Spatial reasoning is our ability to think about objects and shapes and to move them around into new and different positions.
As children fill in their shape outlines, notice whether they know right away which block to get or if they use trial and error with a few different blocks to see which ones fit.
The goal of this game is to see how many different ways you can fill in the puzzle outlines. Be creative!
