Stained Glass Windows

Kids were studying Medieval period, so we decided to make stained glass windows. We learned about the "rose" window in medieval churches, then made our own by drawing with pastels on black paper.

First step was to make a cross and put a design in the center, then 4 designs on each axis. Then we continued by dissecting each section and making more designs, always in the center of the dissections, on the axis.
Last, draw a circle around the outside. Ours were intended to be large and go off the page, hence only part of the circle was drawn.

Thank you Flamson 7th graders in Mrs. Velasco's class!
