Origami can be a fantastic tool to use in the classroom, offering many benefits to students. Some of these benefits include:

  • Improved Fine Motor Skills – Origami involves precise folding and manipulation of paper, promoting the development of fine motor skills in students.
  • Enhanced Spatial Awareness – Folding paper into specific shapes enhances spatial awareness, helping students visualise and understand geometric concepts.
  • Increased Patience and Focus – Origami requires concentration and patience, fostering a sense of focus and attention to detail among students.

It is great fun, too!
