The paper was folded in half and students wrote their name above the stop line. Along the fold we measured about 3 fingers spacing and marked it.
Then we cut straight up from each pencil mark up to the STOP LINE.
We unfolded the paper and laid it flat.
The the students slid two new colors under the woven strips alternating the colors in a pattern.
These new colors were cut in half by the children, creating thinner strips.
Then all the ends were glued down on the front and back sides,
and the longer pieces were trimmed off.
Students folded a 12 x 18 black pear in half, usually a vertical fold is best although my sample is horizontal. I chose a bear head.
