It's officially winter and, while it doesn't snow in many parts of Australia, there are certainly places where it's growing chilly.
What is the temperature like where you live? Does it ever snow?

Origami is the art of paper folding. It can be used to create some amazing pieces of art.

ACM, publisher of this newspaper, is partnering with Children's University Australasia to bring you a series of weekly activity sheets. The activities are designed to be fun and offer interesting discoveries along the way. While most children are back at school as lockdown restrictions ease, others are still spending days at home. We hope these ideas will provide entertainment and opportunities for learning. You could put this page aside to use in the next school holidays!
