Origami is a Japanese word which means ’Paper folding’. It is a craft that all ages enjoy doing . By this technique one can create objects and shapes on paper by folding without using scissors or glue.
This is taught in schools from lower classes because young children can learn about basic concepts in Mathematics like lines, planes, shapes ,and their relationships.
