Friday Fun: Origami

Here’s some Friday Fun: Origami! This was inspired by photos of origami creations by Wenche Lise Fossland of Norway on Instagram.

cover from Origami Step by StepAndersen Library has resources to get you started! Search Research@UWW for the Library’s book holdings to find Origami step by step (3rd-floor Main Collection, TT870 .H318 1998), The Usborne book of origami (2nd-floor Juvenile Non-Fiction, 736.982 Obr), and Creative origami (3rd-floor OVERSIZE, TT870 .K28 1967).

Origami isn’t just fun (or art), though. It can be used in the classroom (see Math in motion: Origami in the classroom: A hands-on creative approach to teaching mathematics at 3rd-floor Main Collection, QA135.6 .P43 2012 or “Math in motion: Origami math for students who are deaf and hard of hearing” in Journal of Deaf Studies & Deaf Education, 2006, vol.11:no.2, pp. 262-266. doi:10.1093/deafed/enj019).


Please ask a librarian for assistance with finding additional materials.
