Week 11- Teach One

origami star

This week, I want to teach my classmates how to do an origami star! I used to make these as a kid. There was an old Japanese story about a little girl who’s mom was suffering from cancer, and an old legend told a tale that 1,000 origami stars would make any wish come true. I really liked this story and even tried folding 1,000 of these stars. You do this by getting a one centimeter wide strip of paper. Tie a knot on the very end and fold the strip around the know until you reach the end of the strip. When there is only a small amount of paper at the end, fold the end into the paper and squeeze all 5 ends. And there is your star!
