1 Review
There is no area of paper technology more popular with chilrden than pop-up engineering. Its creative exponent, Paul Johnson, introduces the language of pop-up forms in stage-by-stage practical workshops for teacher and taught. Each workshop is followed with suggestions for curriculum orientated projects interrelating paper technology, story writing and art. Illustrated in full colour throughout, with easy-to-follow diagrams and many examples of children's work, this book should appeal to teachers, parents and interested general readers alike.
