Project #2 ~ Origami Scenes from the Story

Below you will find a several YouTube videos showing how to create origami animals from Mrs. Frisby in the Rats of NIMH. Note: The mice are easy to create; however, I recommend having students practice with scrap paper first.

Place students into small learning groups. Have students think of a scene from the story with animals only. Each student should create one origami animal. The combined animals are then turned into a diorama like the one pictured. This is a really fun project. You could extend the project by having students write a summary of the scene to place with the diorama.
