3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: Interactive Pattern Recognition Game

“Paul Pattern” is an interactive game to help teach kids to recognize a pattern. If you do not care for the audio, just mute it on your keyboard or turn down your computer speaker’s volume. It is probably most appropriate for four-year-olds and older.

This is a fascinating, fun, and absolutely painless way to add history knowledge that may even launch inquiries leading to more learning. Note: Parents may want to preview the photographs to ensure suitability for your family.
