Quote About Dandelions

"You fight dandelions all weekend, and late Monday afternoon there they are, pert as all get out, in full and gorgeous bloom, pretty as can be, thriving as only dandelions can in the face of adversity."

3-D Study Guide

I'm back! It's been a long while since I've posted anything, but today I'm sharing an instructional on creating a 3-D study guide. I made mine as part of a WebQuest assignment in an Educational Psychology class I am in. While mine is aimed at a high school/college level class, you can make yours for anything!

(Instructions have been modified from the fantastic ones over at Hooty's Homeroom.)

Materials needed:
1 sheet 8.5" x 11" paper
Tape (or paperclip) 

Step 1: Fold the top right corner of the paper over to make a right triangle. Make sure the fold is creased sharply.

Step 2: Unfold and repeat with left corner, creasing sharply. 

Step 3: With the left corner still folded down, fold the bottom rectangle up to crease.

Step 4: Unfold and check to ensure all creases are sharp. 

Step 5: Flip paper over so that the rectangle crease is to the top.

Step 6: Cut the bottom left-hand crease to the center.

Step 7: "Puff" the center up and slide one flap under the other. 

Step 8: Admire your blank study guide. At this point, feel free to do your own thing with this, modifying it for any class. 

Step 9: Unfold your paper and label 3 of the sides with different areas that you are studying. Do not label the side that will be slid under.

Step 10: Under each section that you've labeled, write notes that fall under those areas. (I color coded mine, but there's no real need to.)

Step 11: Title the study guide.

Step 12: Using tape or a paperclip, attach the two sides together. 

All done! Again, this is completely modifiable for anything you or your students are studying with 3 areas. It doesn't even have to be a study guide - you could definitely use this for lots of other things!
