5th grade students viewed a youtube video showing photos of famous rose windows from around the world. We discussed the technique used to create a large stained glass window and spent the first day preparing a white paper with many overlapping colors of tissue paper, giving the effect of stained glass. The second class, students reviewed radial designs and how they always radiate or come out from the middle. After careful planning and sketching, they cut their prepared papers into shapes for their rose window designs.

Inspired by this project seen on Flickr.
