How to Make a Crepe Paper Rose
An elementary school teacher explains how to make a crepe paper rose. It can be done by folding several sheets of tissue paper like an accordion, wrapping a single pipe cleaner around the center of the tissue paper and fanning out the leaves of paper to make a flower shape. You can make many of these flowers to create a fun flower bouquet. This is a good craft for young children because it doesn't require scissors or glue and is good for building dexterity.

3.2 Health and the middle class
This unit considers two ideas: that health is an ever-present factor in our lives, and that health is something difficult to define. But how can we say that health is everywhere if it is so mysterious? How do we recognise health if it so difficult to define? There are no easy answers to these questions! In this unit we explore this paradox, not just because it is a fascinating dilemma but because understanding health in all its multifaceted complexity is a prerequisite to working for health in i
