This was a lesson I saw on There's a Dragon in my Art Room and knew I definitely had to try it! I attempted these with my 5th graders, although when I was making my teacher exemplar, I was worried this was more 6th grade appropriate. I decided 5th graders, however, because I have a flexagon similar to this one on my desk, but more complicated, and the students play with it all the time. Since they always ask to keep it, I decided they can make their own!
This is a project you really have to see in action, rather than a "final result"... because... well... there's 6 final results. I do apologize, too, for not posting step-by-step instructions, but they can all be seen here, and the worksheet is also very helpful.
Here are some pictures of each side flexed:
It's a GREAT math lesson and the students are now addicted to flexing : - ).
