3D Paper Owl from mmmcrafts The gifted Larissa from mmmcrafts is here sharing her amazing talents with an unbelievable 3D paper owl. Larissa writes… Left: art made with this tutorial, Right: art made with alternate colors (see note at the end of the tutorial) Hey, Craft Campers! I’m delighted to participate in this summer kid-craft lineup. How to Tie Basic Knots Basic knots Welcome to Basic Knots The eight knots in this section are the most basic knots - the building blocks of knot tying. The Fibonacci Numbers and Golden section in Nature - 1 This page has been split into TWO PARTS. This, the first, looks at the Fibonacci numbers and why they appear in various "family trees" and patterns of spirals of leaves and seeds. The second page then examines why the golden section is used by nature in some detail, including animations of growing plants. Let's look first at the Rabbit Puzzle that Fibonacci wrote about and then at two adaptations of it to make it more realistic. This introduces you to the Fibonacci Number series and the simple definition of the whole never-ending series. Fibonacci's Rabbits
Paper Chain People Paper Chain People Craft While putting together these Christmas paper chains, I decided to create several more paper chain templates of people, animals and fun shapes. My kids love making accordion fold paper chains – I guess sometimes the simplest kids crafts can also be the most satisfying! DIY Instructions for Beginners ★ As a beginner to pop-ups, the V-fold and box fold techniques are likely to be the ones you will be using most. Here is a list of the most common mechanisms used in pop-up creation: - V-Folds: These can be cut and folded directly into the main piece of card, or can be created by adding an additional section of card for the pop-up shape. V-folds are very versatile and are where, simply enough, a V shape is created with the pop-up section. It’s either the folds made in the base card, or the connections between the separate pop-up section and the base card, which produce the ‘V’ shape when the base card is open. This is the difference from box folds (see below), which are created using parallel horizontal or vertical folds rather than making use of V shaped angles.
Effective Teachers of Numeracy in Primary Schools: Teachers' Beliefs, Practices and Pupils' Learning. Paper presented at the British Educational Research Association Annual Conference (September 11-14 1997: University of York) Abstract This paper reports on part of a study examining the links between teachers' practices, beliefs and knowledge and pupil learning outcomes in the development of numeracy with pupils aged five to eleven. From a sample of 90 teachers and 2000 pupils, we developed detailed case studies of 18 teachers. As part of these case studies we explored the teachers' beliefs about what it means to be numerate, how pupils become numerate and the roles of the teachers. From the data three sets of belief orientations were identified: connectionist, transmission and discovery.

Design Blog with good ideas Your challenge is to make an origami book...from only a sheet of A3, and you are not allowed to use any glue. (Clue: You only need to make one cut to the paper). Upper School girls will have to work it out for themselves; lower-school girls will have a little help! When finished, you can use the book to write down a times table! Archimedean solid "Identical vertices" are usually taken to mean that for any two vertices, there must be an isometry of the entire solid that takes one vertex to the other. Sometimes it is instead only required that the faces that meet at one vertex are related isometrically to the faces that meet at the other. This difference in definitions controls whether the elongated square gyrobicupola is considered an Archimedean solid or a Johnson solid: it is the unique convex polyhedron that has regular polygons meeting in the same way at each vertex, but that does not have a global symmetry taking every vertex to every other vertex. Based on its existence, Branko Grünbaum (2009) has suggested a terminological distinction in which an Archimedean solid is defined as having the same vertex figure at each vertex (including the elongated square gyrobicupola) while a uniform polyhedron is defined as having each vertex symmetric to each other vertex (excluding the gyrobicupola).
Tropical Paper Flowers These bright and beautiful paper flowers are made from scrapbook paper and cardstock and were inspired by the gorgeous tropical flowers in warm weather climates. So if you want to have a bit of the tropics in your home year round, make these tropical paper flowers! A bonus… they never need watering. :) When I decided to make these flowers, I drew my initial inspiration from these beautiful felt flowers from Crafty Staci. Hers were so pretty and colorful that they caught my eye the very first time I saw them! I decided to use paper because there are so many pretty patterns available in scrapbook paper that you just can’t get in felt.
