Students have been exploring creating snowflakes through paper cutting.

First graders learned how to create a four-pointed snowflake.

Fourth and fifth grade students learned how to create a six-pointed snowflake.

Everyone enjoyed the process of folding and cutting the paper into unique symmetrical shapes.

Most people make snowflakes with four or eight points. Real snowflakes in nature form with six points (or occasionally three if they formed weird).

Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes, pentagrams, or orchid blossoms.

This project is always a favorite for students to learn and master basic folding techniques.

Here are some examples of students’ snowflakes.
