Awesome Origami

Originally uploaded by MissJulieM
We practiced our geometry skills yesterday as we attempted to make awesome origami creations—triangles were a piece of cake to make!

Student volunteers taught origami creations that they knew how to make—it was a great time, and it was wonderful to see the children working together so well!

Have you ever heard of the story, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes? This is the biography of a child who contracts leukemia after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. She makes it her mission to make 1,000 paper cranes. This is a heart wrenching read that is filled with hope.
