Symmetrical Origami

- Origami Paper/ I actually bought colored paper from Office Depot and cut 5" x 5" square pieces
- Glue
- 18" x 18" Construction Paper

I taught the students 4 basic folds used in origami:

Using these 4 folds, the students created a composition that represented radial symmetry!

  1. WOW these are FABULOUS! I'm such a klutz with origami - never seem to be able to get it right - so that makes these look even MORE spectacular to me. Great lesson!

  2. I'm with Phyl...I would love to do this but am a mess at origami...can you show us how to do the four basic folds?

  3. Done and done! : - )

  4. Fantastic documentation and pictures! Thank you for the idea and wonderful examples! I cannot wait to try this with my students.

  5. I love how architectural these look! Beautiful.
