Product Description
This activity has two parts:
- A teacher-guided demonstration of Mobius strips and the fun that can happen when you cut those strips.
- A student-centered activity with detailed instructions and patterns to guide students through the creation of a hexaflexagon--a flat object with three "sides."

Watch this video (link) for more information about flexagons (source: Vi Hart). The flexagon created in this activity is the relatively simple hexaflexagon, the first one shown in the video.

When I used this in my own classroom, even students who were usually most reluctant were excited to create this unusual object. I was happy to see students exploring what else they could do with Mobius strips as well.

The instructions are detailed enough that most students were able to complete the task with minimal intervention from me. It is STRONGLY encouraged that you, the teacher, practice creating these flexagons before giving the task to your students so you can answer their questions if they run into trouble.

Unlike most hexaflexagon templates available online, this template includes student-friendly, step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow even when the template is copied in black and white. Students can color their own design on each face of the flexagon.
