3rd graders created amazing 3D paper chameleons for their sculpture unit. The step-by-step instructions can be found HERE. We began by creating painted paper with intermediate colors.
After a lot of folding and cutting, the chameleon’s bodies were assembled. There was a great math connection with angles, rulers, and academic language such as types of triangles and vertices.
Students traded their papers to have an assortment of colors anc created the legs, heads, tongues, and all sorts of details!
