3-D Lizards











This is another great end of the year lesson. We talk about shape/form and 3-D/2-D.

  1. How do you get the tail to be skinnier?

  2. The paper starts off as a triangle. Then it is folded into fourths. The tip of the triangle is the tail of the lizard....This is a hard one to explain in words...hope this helps

  7. Wow! That is awesome! We have a month to do non-clay 3D with our 2nd grade students. They would get a riot out of this lesson. Do you have a lesson plan that goes along with it?

    Thanks!

  8. I have tried and tried to figure out the pattern...is there any way you could give a quick step by step tutorial? I get the fold, but cannot figure out how the tail becomes slimmer at the end. Thank you!!
