Description

These ‘Movement Patterns Cards’ are a super fun way to demonstrate that patterns can be made from more than just shapes or objects. Your students will have so much fun copying the movement patterns as well as creating their own! They make a wonderful brain break activity too!

Print and laminate multiple copies of each movement card. They can be used as a small group activity or a whole class activity. Create a pattern for students to copy and continue or ask different students to create a pattern for the class.
