This fabulous lesson idea i found on Pinterest. I loved making mine with the children and they loved the outcome. Once they understood the flip idea they were hooked.

We start with an A3 white page and a rathe smaller rectangle of black paper. I cut an A3 black page down the short side into thirds or quarters to create the middle black areas.

It is important to stress that no black pieces may be cut off to throw away. So every part must be used or the concept is ruined.
Also important is the exact alignment of the black cut pieces as it creates a preciseness which is beautiful and clear. It looks professional and well finished if you make the kids become pedantic about their final sticking.

Everything is cut out and only stuck when all is ready.

I have explained the cuts in terms of flips and children who can make triple or quadruple flips are praised as very cleaver indeed.

Do give this project a try. Its the type of project where kids excitedly go home and more more of the same idea for themselves – which in my mind makes it a complete sucess!
