Origami boxes, 2nd grade


Second graders are, like most of my other grades, moving into 3-D form in this unit. After practicing drawing forms on paper, like spheres, cubes, and cylinders, we tried our hands at a little origami. We used full size sheets of newsprint, and to make the paper a little snazzier, we rubbed the newsprint using peeled crayon stubs and Roylco brand Op-Art rubbing plates for color and texture. I found an instruction sheet online, and we all folded together, one step at a time - and everybody got it! Success! Here's the site with the diagram and a video :
