What Goes Next Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a pattern completion exercise, presented in a grid format, designed for educational purposes. Each row in the grid displays a sequence of colored geometric shapes with one or more shapes missing, indicated by empty spaces. The students’ task is to determine the missing shapes by identifying the pattern in the sequence of existing shapes. The patterns vary by row, incorporating different shapes and colors to provide a range of challenges.

The worksheet is aimed at teaching students how to recognize and predict patterns, a foundational concept in mathematics and critical thinking. It helps students practice identifying sequences and apply logical reasoning to determine what comes next. These exercises also improve a child’s visual discrimination skills, as they must notice the subtle differences in shape and color to correctly complete the patterns. Additionally, it introduces basic geometry by familiarizing students with the properties and names of various shapes.
