This great "re-use it" activity will demonstrate how to transform a greeting card into a box. Once constructed, the box can have many uses like holding special notes or keepsakes.
In this activity, learners create three-dimensional shapes by making some origami models of simple boxes and containers.
This resource contains ideas and brief instructions on how to build animals out of construction paper and other simple materials.
Space telescopes can offer us better, clearer views of the universe (and of our own planet) than Earth-based telescopes can, but getting these large, delicate pieces of equipment into orbit is tricky.
In this activity, learners explore how the process of folding has impacts on engineering and is evident in nature.
Use geometry, a ruler, and a steady hand to create these amazing unfurling paper folds!
In this geology activity learners build a "squeeze box," which allows them to compress layers of sediment. This is a great way to investigate folding and faulting in the Earth.
In this design and physics challenge, learners construct a cylindrical wing, fly it, make modifications, and determine how the changes affect flight patterns.
In this math lesson, learners model exponential decay and exponential growth using M&M's, paper folding, and African rhino population data.
In this activity, learners manipulate paper to build original 3-dimensional sculptures. Appropriate for any age, learners can use fingers to tear, crumple, or fold, and if available, scissors to cut.
Here's a very simple activity if you have paper and scissors: make one cut, unfold, and you have a beautiful star! A great way to learn about polygons and origami mathematics.
