Learn It, Teach It: Origami
Spanish Language Learners– Inspired by Carmen Sandiego™ Episode 7, kids learn to fold an origami figure and teach a partner to do the same.
Discover the Art of Origami
In the Netflix® series, Carmen faces the VILE agent, Paper Star, whose specialty is throwing origami figures. As your kids learn origami, they also boost their Spanish vocabulary as they explain the steps to a partner.
The VILE operative Paper Star is an origami expert. Have kids learn how to make a simple origami figure and then tell a partner in Spanish how to make the same figure. You might want to provide related vocabulary words, such as cortar, doblar, desdoblar, doblez, pliegue, and so on.
- Have kids find a simple origami figure and use a resource in Spanish to learn how to make it. They might read an article with images or watch a video.
- Kids practice making the figure and then come up with step-by-step directions in Spanish that they can use while showing their partner how to make the figure.
- Display the figures around the class.
