180 Opportunities to Notice

In my previous post, Provide Massive Space to Notice, I described how to repeatedly use the same dot pattern to promote noticing.  In this post, I would simply like to give you 10 pages of dot patterns which you can download and use with your students.  The purpose is to promote a wide variety of seeking perspectives, noticing , and recording observations in ways that can be very useful.  Simply watch the video and download the pages.

You can download the pages from the video here.  Each PDF is an individual file, so feel free to download each one separately.

Also, in the next post I’ll describe how you can use a tool that I’ve developed to make your own pages in 10 seconds or less.
