Nature's Repeating Patterns
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Good morning, class," said Mrs. Kim. "Today we are going to talk about patterns in nature. Can anyone tell me what a pattern is?"
 
2     Julie raised her hand right away. "My mom uses a pattern when she is sewing. She pins the pattern to the material she is using and cuts around it."
 
3     "Very good, Julie," said Mrs. Kim. "Can anyone else give an example?"
 
4     "Last weekend my dad put up new wallpaper in our living room," said C. J. "He said he had to be careful and match the pattern. The paper had flowers in it, and he had to make sure the flowers lined up the same way."
 
5     "Another good example," said Mrs. Kim. "We are going to talk about that kind of pattern today. We are going to discuss things which repeat over and over again."
 
6     "You mean we're going to talk about pictures on paper?" questioned Matthew.
 
7     "Not exactly," answered Mrs. Kim. "We're going to discuss events that occur over and over in nature. But we're going to start by looking at some patterns and answer questions about them."
 
8     Mrs. Kim walked to the chalkboard in front of the class. On the board she drew a star, a square, and a circle. "If we wanted to repeat these figures in a pattern, what would you draw next?"
 
9     "I know," said Robbie. "You would draw another star, then a square, and then a circle."
