Origami Relief Snowflakes

The 5th graders reviewed what symmetry was, then it was extended into a new word, radial symmetry. We discussed examples of where one might find radial symmetry, ig. Pizza, bicycle wheels, etc. Then we started talking about origami. After watching these videos, and practicing, the students were set loose, to make their own paper sculpture snowflakes!
