What’s the Next Circle

What's the Next Circle Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a learning activity focused on pattern recognition using colored circles. The worksheet is structured with rows of three colored circles, followed by a blank square where a circle is missing. Students are expected to determine the color of the circle that completes the sequence in each row. The colors repeat in a specific pattern that the student needs to decipher in order to correctly identify the missing colored circle.

The purpose of this worksheet is to enhance students’ ability to recognize and extend patterns, a fundamental skill in early mathematics education. It teaches students to observe sequences and predict the next item, reinforcing their understanding of order and regularity. The exercise also bolsters critical thinking and problem-solving as they apply logic to identify the correct color. Moreover, this activity supports color recognition, helping students to distinguish and name colors, which is a key aspect of their cognitive development.
