Using Surds to prove an Origami Kite
In this activity (recommended by @Karenshancock) students start by folding a piece of A4 into a kite. They are next challenged (and it is a challenge) to prove that the resulting shape really is a kite. They will need to know Pythagoras's theorem. The pictures are just larger versions of the ones in the document.
