Wow 2018 has come and we have been so busy with our learning we haven't even posted on our class blog yet! We have been learning about how different people learn through different styles; there is no wrong just different ways. Try the activity below with others and see your differences. The image is all of the pieces of paper we created from following the instructions. And the cool thing: not one piece is the same. Tino pai Ruma Rima

  • Give each students a blank origami paper.
  • Explain, you will be giving them instructions on how to fold their paper.
  • Students must close their eyes and not speak during the exercise.
Read the instructions below, giving students time to complete each instruction 

               ◊ Fold your sheet of paper in half.
               ◊ Tear off the upper right-hand corner.
               ◊ Fold your paper in half again.
               ◊ Tear off the lower right-hand corner.
               ◊ Fold your paper in half.
               ◊ Tear off the upper left-hand corner.
               ◊ Fold in half a final time.
               ◊ Tear off the lower left-hand corner.
               ◊ Unfold your paper and hold it up.
  • Have everyone open their eyes, unfold their papers, and compare what they look like.


  1. Mōrena Ruma Rima,
    Welcome to Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu for 2018. I'm James, and although I don't officially work with Manaiakalani any more, I still really enjoy dropping in to class blogs and sharing in the learning. It's great to see you guys back and in the blogging space again. I really like how many different outcomes you had in this task? Why do you think that is? I can't wait to drop back in and see more of your learning throughout the year.
    Mā te wā

  2. Hi James, we had so much fun doing this and we loved this task at least we didn't use scissors :)
