Pattern Recognition

Today we learnt about how fast the Ostrich can run! Which is approximately 70 km/h, over a period of 30 minutes – impressive! We started by looking at four different bird types (Ostrich, peacock, chicken and duck) and then ordered them from fastest to slowest. Obviously this was interrupted by each child having to demonstrate just how fast they can run! Later, each was given a paper strip with illustrations of each bird. They then cut these out and sorted them according to speed. This was aided by ordered cards. This exercise was good for pattern recognition as well as fine motor skills used for cutting, sticking and coloring.
