Origami Jumping Frogs

Origami is a fantastic way to practice fine motor skills, sequencing and spatial skills. It is an art form that engages youth and adults alike. It’s the perfect activity for a classroom that consists of students and their classroom assistants. Students and staff alike at Taggart Elementary were very enthused to create the origami jumping frog that I presented to them.

Some students were already familiar with origami and were encouraged to help out their friends. Origami requires a lot of adjustments when it’s ones first time making a piece. So, it can become a group activity with students helping and guiding one another.

Students colored their origami frogs and added details.
Some students even made a habitat for their frogs. This student made up their own folds to create a box structure.
Of course, we had to have a jumping frog racing contest!
