I was inspired by an activity by TechChef4u while teaching patterning this week. Students looked around the classroom for examples of patterns and took photos of them in the camera app. They then highlighted the repeated elements of the patterns in Skitch. Students created a page of patterns in Pic Collage and then imported this page into Explain Everything. They recorded themselves explaining the repeated elements. The students were highly engaged in the task and especially enjoyed highlighting the patterns in the outfit I was wearing that day!
