I asked my 4th grade students to place their work on the 'side counter top' one time and one of the kids took his scraps and folded it so it make a small paper easel. When I went to pick up all the work I saw the small structure and was amazed. I took the idea and used it for 'free' displays for clay slab work.
I took a small cardboard and folded it in 3 places as seen above.
I used a little hot glue to make the whole things stick together. They were wonderful. Thank goodness for teaching the teacher!
