Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. (Qur'an, Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #190)
This lesson on patterning in prekindergarten was about patterns that Allah created on animals. It was an awe-inspiring lesson as we looked at photos of real-life animals. The children were truly fascinated and in awed and every time they saw something wonderful they would say "Subhanallah" or "Masha Allah".
For this lesson you really need large colourful photos from non-fiction books or downloaded from the internet. We looked at leopards, giraffes, tigers, fish, birds, butterflies, insects, for example. If you want to instill the wonders of Allah in children then this is one of the lessons.
After we looked and talked about the photographs we tried to duplicate the patterns on the animals.
