Hexaflexagons!

headingThis week we are learning about geometry and Hexaflexagons… What is that you ask?

It is an awesome piece of paper folded into a hexagon and then you fold them in different ways they turn into what seems like another hexagon! And you can see how it works in the video below and you can also see how to make a {get ready} HEXAFLEXAMEXAGON!!!! {Which is like a burrito}.Just when you thought you had seen all its sides – there is another one!

There are 3 videos total – click on them all!

Happy Flexing!
