Techie Turtle Teacher has started a fun new linky party called “Movie Clip Monday.” I loved using video clips in my classroom because it helps students to visualize concepts and reinforce verbal explanations. What a great idea to share ideas and save each other some time scanning the web for the best ones.
A few days ago I posted my FREE Geometry quizzes for Grades 3-8. I wrote about a vocabulary illustration assignment that I used in my classroom to help students make creative associations between the plethora of vocal terms, and the visual geometric representations for each one.

Today I'd like to share a website with multiple video clips that illustrate folding techniques for origami projects. Kids LOVE this!!!! I have always loved origami, but in the past teaching my students with the step-by-step diagrams was very difficult for most. These video clips are awesome because they animate each fold and you have the option of repeating the demonstration, speeding it up, sowing it down, or playing it in reverse!
Here are some project ideas for Valentines Day from Origami Club. The stars indicate the level of difficulty. The menu to the left gives other categories of projects. (animation) means there's a video.
