Make Student Foldables

Student foldables help students master complicated subjects.

Student foldables are three-dimensional, hands-on, teaching tools that help students to organize information that they are required to learn. Student foldables can be used to teach any academic subject. Student foldables are effective because they allow students to take an active role in developing their own learning resources; students are physically and mentally engaged during the process of making foldables. Foldables are small enough to be carried in a backpack or a pocket, and appeal to learners for whom paper and pencil activities aren’t effective. A panoramic-style student foldable is easy to make from a standard sheet of paper.


1. Fold an 8 ½-by-11-inch sheet of paper in half so that that there are two sections that each measure 8 ½-by-5 ½ inches. Use scissors to cut along the fold.

2. Place both pieces of paper on a flat surface. Fold each piece of paper in half so that each section measures 5 ½-by-4 1/4 inches.

3. Place the pieces of paper next to each other so that the short sides touch. Place a 1-inch piece of tape on the paper to connect the two pieces.

4. Fold the outermost sections of the sheet toward the middle, along the previously created fold lines.

5. Fold the sheet in half again so that only one section is face up.

6. Open up the paper and write a different concept on the inside of each panel.
