Symmetrical Origami

Materials:
- 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!
