Star Book and Name Design

Origami Plus Geometry (4th-12th grade)

Students complete an Origami Star Book then use the Geometric Name Design process to create a front cover for the book.

Students will fold two-dimensional paper into three-dimensional stars to create fold-out origami books. Students will then create covers for their books using a radial, geometric name design process incorporating symmetry, reflections, rotations, fractions, quadrants, horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines and more.
The end product is a "one-of-a-kind" book and cover to take home or use as a writing prompt. A wonderful way for students of all ages to learn and reinforce math skills. Please click on the image below to see a detailed finished product!


Artist: Pamela Lamont

Pam was absolutely fantastic. She had a great rapport with the students and their classroom teachers.

A. Call, Librarian, Kensler Elementary, Wichita

The students and I really looked forward to having Pam come each day. I feel it is so important to use the arts to reach students besides using paper and pencil activities. It involves their whole body!

My students had a lot of fun with the Geometric Name Design program. It was a good way to review concepts.
