Quarter Patterns!


Heads – Tails – Heads – Tails – Heads =

What You Will Need: 

  • Pencil, paper, pencil crayons or markers and a coin

How to play:

  1. Flip a coin 5 times. On your paper keep track if it lands on heads or tails.
  2. Once you have flipped the coin 5 times, make a pattern using the results of your coin flips. The pattern you make is totally up to you. Your pattern can use shapes, colours, or anything you think up!
  • One idea is drawing triangles for Heads, and ovals for Tails.
  1. If you want to challenge yourself, you can flip the coin more times to make a longer pattern.
  2. Do this 5 times so that you have 5 different patterns.
