World Time Clock & Map - Check Current Local Time Around the World Let's Make a Flexagon Let's Make a Flexagon Flexagons are flat models made from folded strips of paper that can be flexed to reveal a number of hidden faces. They are amusing toys that have also caught the interest of mathematicians and paper crafters alike. We will be making one of the simplest types, called a trihexaflexagon, which can reveal six unique patterns. Here is a video of the flexagon in action. To make your own flexagon, you will need to print the flexagon template (a pdf file) in colour on legal (8.5 x 11 in) paper. Crease along all the diagonals and along the centre. Turn the template over to the non coloured side. Fold the left side under to create a mountain fold between the blue and red triangles. Fold under again between the blue and red triangles. Now glue the two single layer flaps together to enclose all the uncoloured paper. Congratulations!

21 Map Creation Tools for Students and Teachers Yesterday, I published a review of MapFab which is a fabulous, free, and simple tool for creating maps online.
