Simple, but effective. A craft for several activities!

Last month I wrote a post about integrating technology into a science lesson by printing out pictures for a cloud booklet. Since then, I have discovered (from my awesome teaching partner) a new way to make a cute booklet. It. Is. So. Simple. And I yet, I didn’t know how to do it until someone taught me (crazy how that works!).

Step One: Decide how many pages you want your booklet to be (including the cover). I want my booklet to be six pages, therefore I need three pieces of paper. Lay the three pieces of paper on top of each other as shown in the picture:

Step 2: Fold the paper, so that the three overlapped tabs on the other side are on top of these three tabs. As shown in the picture:

Step three: Staple, and you are done! SO EASY (I apologize this isn’t stapled):

Here is what one of my student’s completed cloud booklet looked like:

You can use this kind of booklet for so many activities. Writing about different scenes in a book, or different characters in a story, are just two examples.

What would you use this booklet for? Share your ideas!
