Is There a Bird in the Tree?
Use the instructions below to create an origami Crane.
1. Begin with a square piece of paper.
2. Fold paper along the diagonal as shown.
3. Your crane should look like this.
4. Open the paper back up.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
5. Fold both sides into the diagonal.
6. Your fold lines should look like this.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
7. Fold the right half of the paper over the diagonal.
8. Fold the top flap of paper up.
9. Turn the paper over and fold the other flap of paper up.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
10. Flip the paper back over.
11. Fold the top of the triangle back to form the crane’s neck.
12. Fold the top vertex forward to form the crane’s head.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
13. Fold the bottom vertex up to form the crane’s tail. Voila! You now have an Origami
Crane. Share it with all your friends!!
14. Now unfold your crane and trace all of the folding lines as shown.
15. Optional folds. Fold the corner in as shown.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
16. Optional folds. Do the same to the other side.
17. Optional folds shown in red. Trace the new folding lines.
18. Your paper should now look like this. Optional folds shown in red.
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
19. Label the vertices of the triangles as shown. Optional folds shown in red.
20. How many triangles do you see being formed by the folds?
21. Name all of the triangles shown by the folds.
22. Consider ∆HSG. Classify the interior angles.
a. The triangle can be classified as an acute triangle. Why?
b. Can you find the sum of the measures of the three angles of this triangle without
measuring?
c. If so, what is the sum? If not, measure the angles to find the sum.
d. Will the sum of the measures of the three angles of an acute triangle always be the
same? Why or why not?
23. Consider ∆GFE, classify the interior angles.
a. This triangle is known as a right triangle. Why?
b. How many acute angles does it have?
c. What is the sum of the measures of these acute angles?
d. How do you know?
Based on activities from Carnegie Learning
e. Can you find the sum of the measures of the three angles of this triangle without
measuring?
f. If so, what is the sum? If not, measure the angles to find the sum.
g. Will the sum of the measures of the three angles of a right triangle always be the
same? Why or why not?
24. Consider ∆NCT; classify the interior angles of this triangle.
a. This triangle is known as an obtuse triangle. Why?
b. Can you find the sum of the measures of the three angles of this triangle without
measuring?
c. If so, what is the sum? If not, measure the angles to find the sum.
d. Will the sum of the measures of the three angles of an obtuse triangle always be the
same? Why or why not?
25. Are there any triangles in your diagram with exactly two congruent sides? If so, name
them. If not, draw a triangle with exactly two congruent sides.
a. This type of a triangle is called an isosceles triangle. An isosceles triangle is a triangle
with at least two congruent sides. Measure the three angles. What do you notice?
b. Do you think this is true for all isosceles triangles?
26. Are there any triangles in your diagram with three congruent sides? If so, name them. If
not, draw a triangle with three congruent sides.
a. This type of a triangle is called equilateral. Why?
b. Measure the three angles of your equilateral triangle. What are their measures?
c. What can you conclude about the three angles of an equilateral triangle?
27. If a triangle has three congruent angles, it is called equiangular. Why?
a. What can you conclude about equiangular triangles? What can you conclude about
equilateral triangles?
28. A scalene triangle is a triangle with no two sides congruent. Name all scalene triangles
from your diagram.
a. Measure the three angles of two of the scalene triangles. What do you notice?
b. What can you conclude about the angle measures of a scalene triangle?
29. Is it possible to draw an isosceles right triangle? If so, draw it. If not, explain why not.
30. Is it possible to draw an isosceles obtuse triangle? If so, draw it. If not explain why not.
31. Is it possible to draw a scalene obtuse triangle? If so, draw it. If not, explain why not.
32. Is it possible to draw a scalene right triangle? If so, draw it. If not explain why not.

22. All are acute.
a. Because all angles are acute.
b. Yes.
c. 180.
d. Yes. Because the sum of the measures of the three angles of a triangle is equal to
180.
23. Two are acute, one is right.
a. Because it has a right angle.
b. two
c. 90.
d. Because there are 180 degrees in a triangle. The right angle is equal to 90.
Therefore the other two angles must equal 90 because 180 -90 = 90.
e. yes
f. 180.
g. Yes. Because the sum of the measures of the three angles of a triangle is equal to
180.
24. Two are acute, one is obtuse.
