# Guess My Pattern

Description

This class activity is part of our progressive Year 5 Number Patterns unit however can be adapted to suit Year 4 and Year 6 students exploring and consolidating number patterns of whole numbers. Students work in pairs, take turns to ask each other questions to try and work out each other’s patterns.

As a whole class activity where students work in groups of two or three.
