If you wish to make the SIMPLE factors and multiples mini book, print the file and follow the instructions that are shown on the Fractions Mini Book page.
If you wish to make the TALKING factors and multiples mini book, print the file, and follow the instructions below.
|Start by folding the book in the same way as the Fractions Mini Book. The last two pages of the factors and multiples mini book are blank; this is where the talking guys will go. Using the small "Multiples are Many, Factors are Few" squares, follow the instructions below to make the faces of the talking guys.|
|With the dots facing up and at the top of the paper, fold the left and right sides together; crease and unfold.|
|Now fold the top and bottom together; crease and unfold.|
|Fold the left and right edges to the center fold; crease and unfold. Then turn the paper over so the dots are not visible.|
|Fold the paper diagonally; crease and unfold.|
|Now fold diagonally the other direction; crease and unfold.|
|Fold the four corners to the center of the square. The dots will appear again. Crease and unfold, making sure that the dots (which will be on the underside of the unfolded paper) are at the top of the square.|
|Fold the top and bottom edges to the center fold; crease but DO NOT unfold. Can you see the eyes and the outline of the faces of the talking guys?|
|Open up the previous folds and put glue on all of the shaded areas of the inside of the paper.|
|Press the flaps back down and wait for the glue to dry.|
|Flip the paper over and put glue on the shaded rectangles...|
|...then press the paper into place on the blank last page of your book.|
|Gently pry open the mouths of the talking guys. As you open their mouths...|
|...the edges of the paper will fold like an accordion.|
|Glue a cover on your book.|
|The guys will talk when the last page of the book is opened and closed.|
