Welcome to Day three of the Amazing Race.
Today you will demonstrate your ability in an ancient Chinese Art form. As you know, paper was invented in China. It is only natural that the Chinese started to “play” with the paper.
Your Race Coordinators will show you the final product and guide your through the instructions on how to properly fold one piece of paper into a little box. You will receive a printout of the instructions.
Each student will create their own Origami box.
Your Race Coordinators will time you and record the fastest time. The Origami will also be judged on accuracy and overall appearance of final box.
Race Coordinators: Please take pictures and forward to Mr. Barry for upload of the best origami per class.
Points will be awarded : 100/80/60
In order to continue on to the next challenge every team member will need to complete the following in their own time.
Research Terra Cotta Warriors
Write one paragraph about what you find out and come up with three questions that you would like to know more about these Warriors.
Once students return with their paragraphs, the class will respond on the blog and will come up with the best content for their “class paragraph”, incorporating facts they found out. They will also decide and post the best three questions from the pool they generated.
