Tuesday's class time was spent learning about the 1,000 Paper Cranes project and the story of Sadako, as well as learning to make origami paper cranes. After watching a brief video on the Sadako Story found online, students watched a step-by-step tutorial video showing each fold in making a paper crane. Along with my demonstration, students were able to feel comfortable with the steps and technique by the second crane they made.
Students must make 10 cranes each by Friday (regardless of absences, field trips, etc). Five origami cranes can be plain white paper, but AT LEAST five must be colored paper (watercolored, colored w/ pencils, etc).
As part of our 1,000 Paper Cranes project, a few students will be volunteering to teach visitors to our i-Fest celebration how to fold cranes and help us in our pursuit of making 1,000.
