Here are the final results of the class auction project that the fifth graders made. I bought Ikea box frames (30″ square) and we used solid colored origami paper. I thought the patterned paper would look too busy for this.
I went to school one day last week and taught the kids how to make a simple origami box (so fun!). One class worked on the boxes for the blue piece and the other class worked on the green ones. It’s quite interesting to see the differences in manual dexterity. Nevertheless, they all did great.
