Awesome Triaramas in Grade Three

Grade three just finished making their triaramas. I love doing these because they are so versatile and adaptable to any theme or lesson you teach.

For these, the students had to recreate their favorite room in their house. The instructions are quite simple. Give each student a square paper. They fold it in half and trace over the line. They turn it to look like a diamond shape and cut a line up to the fold line.  For detailed direction you can go here.

The top triangle is for the background. They can also add details to one of the bottom cut sections as long as it is the visible one as the other will be folded under and pasted to give the triarama shape.

Finally with recycled paper they can add details that will be ‘standing’ and will become the foreground and will bring their triarama to life! Let their imagination go wild and have lots of fun.

Isn’t this cute? I love the flower pot!

  1. Thanks so much for this idea!! Great idea to do with the kids when there aren’t many resources available. Thank you!!

  2. I’m planning to use the triaramas as part of a math lesson focusing on vocabulary. The students will construct a triarama for a troublesome math term such as angle.
