Make a pop up octahedron - fun themed lesson
Instructions on how to make a pop up animal out of an octahedron. Can be used at halloween making devils, christmas making robins or easter making chicks. Requires pupils to construct an equilateral triangle and then trace and cut out a net. The part where you selotape an elastic band inside will need a trial run by you beforehand otherwise it can seem a bit confusing but it is simple - just hard to show in a diagram. Pupils adore this activity, a fun lesson without being a lesson off from learning!
