Notan

Standard

I needed a “low mess” project for my second graders. Plus I had inadvertently cut up colored paper in 6×9 for another project that we ended up not needing. This was a great lesson that used up that paper and was low mess with glue stick, and scissors.

I show them examples of Japanese Notan then do a demo of cutting and flipping the paper so they see how it works.

I ask them to cut it all and place it and get my OK before gluing.

The kids that have great spatial relation concepts and who are good at puzzles seem to have the easiest time but even those who find the idea challenging had some great results.

This lesson is a great reminder for kids to keep trying and have that growth mind set.
