Fast foward to 3:27 in the video for the instructions
Origami comes from the Japanese words ori meaning folding and gami meaning paper. The challenge is to transform a flat square piece of paper into a sculpture using folds and creases. Origami has so much to teach us about geometry, fractions, and problem-solving. Creating origami requires patience and focus but seeing your finished product is extremely rewarding.
