FUN FRIDAY: Differentiate and inspire with pop-ups

On Fridays, we will always share a single teacher-inspired idea from the web. Every idea will be related to teaching & learning but will also be chosen for its “fun factor”. Today is no exception. Check out the website of artist and author Robert Sabuda and learn about making and using pop-ups in the classroom. Some might be used as an art project but others would fit nicely into literature, science (animals), or social studies (transportation, landforms) lessons. Math teachers might even use pop-ups to teach about shapes and 3-D objects.

This seems like it would be a great choice activity- allowing students to represent a concept by drawing it, explaining it, or by making a pop-up model.
