Paper Sculptures

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. Take your flat piece of paper to the next dimension by constructing a paper robot, a paper table that can hold another object, or simply experimenting with the materials and techniques. Activity includes step-by-step instructions.
