In addition to the sheer fun of the activity, the real magic in Origami lies in its ability to help students in a multitude of ways. Students quickly learn the importance of following directions and maintaining focus. While developing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, spatial reasoning and problem solving skills, students interactively gain experience with math skills incuding fractions, symmetry, and geometry. Unfolding the finished model will reveal a pattern of creases offering more complex concepts for discussion. The expression of math and science concepts though art, can bring tangible experience to, very often, elusive theories.
