Did you make it through part four? I know that was LONG! The next part is much faster and also know that once you tell the students how to do the next part one time, every thing is pretty much on auto pilot other than cutting additional string and fixing problems.
Today’s post is about the stellations, which are the points of the 20 pointed star. Let’s get started!
That’s one point! Only 19 more to go! Repeat steps 1 through 3 all around the icosahedron. As they get closer to finishing, students may notice that they may need feed their ribbon through other straws to get to faces that need a point on it. They can either feed it through to get to it or cut the string and reattached on the vertex of the remaining face.
Some students finish VERY fast, others take three days to finish the points. I usually let them make another if time permits, but I usually have them do a variation! I’ll explain what I mean in the next post!
