reSolve: Patterns: Attribute Train
This sequence of two lessons explores the similarity and differences of objects based on attributes. The sequence begins by looking at the attributes of colour and shape and then introduces a third attribute of size. Students are asked to determine what an object might look like when one or two of its attributes are changed. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources such as sample shapes to sort. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry program.
