About

Origami Club rocks! I gave a lecture yesterday and stayed for the presentations by teachers. One teacher introduced us to this site and I was immediately captivated. Such easy instructions, very user friendly, topical (lots of Christmas stuff). Further, though I've done origami before, I was really sold on how following English instructions and learning while doing is such a great idea (thanks Paul!).

Teachers can easily print the instructions on Origami Club and give as a handout to students. Even better to use a video to first let them listen/watch. (see example below). Then, do together. I'd start with an easy one. How about making origamis of the alphabet? Or animals? For X-mas, the Star works well. Just click "Christmas" on the left of the main page and you have lots to select from. Each origami comes with easy to follow flash animation instructions. You'll have to invest in some square based origami paper that's all. Even a guy who is all thumbs like me can do it! So add origami as an excellent craft based lesson to break things up during the school year!

Here's a nice example of a video showing how to fold a Christmas Tree. Here's the Origami Club "anime" (this is for every origami) about making a traditional crane. Get more arts and crafts ideas HERE.
