Instructions for Folding a Cruncher
- Illustrations Facing Down - Fold all four corners together so that they meet in the middle of the paper, crease firmly and leave them there.
- Flip Over - Again fold all four corners together so that they meet in the centre of the paper, give a good crease and leave them there.
- Fold in half in one direction, then in half in the other direction.
- Finish - Stick your thumbs and first two fingers into the four pockets on the bottom of the cruncher and start crunching.
How to Play the Game:
- Spell out your name, or count out the number of letters in your name, at the same time as you open and close your cruncher.
- Choose a number from one of the Aboriginal illustrations from one of the inside triangles.
- Count out the number you've chosen from the inside triangles, at the same time as you open and close your cruncher.
- Again, choose a number from one of the Aboriginal illustrations from the inside triangles, but this time peek under the flap and read the question at the top.
- The sentence under the question will tell you where to go to find the answer. Go there and see if you answered right! If not, see what you learned.
- Go cruncher crazy and repeat the steps as many times as you want!
