Lesson Title/Unit: Stained Glass Windows
Grade Level: 4th grade
Overview: The students will first be introduced to the history of stained glass
windows and shown a picture of The North Rose Window of the Cathedral of Notre
Dame in Paris. After this we will tell the class some interesting facts about stained
glass windows. These facts include the following:
1) In what types of places do you most often see stained glass windows?
2) How does the stained glass artist cut the glass to the correct size?
3) How does the stained glass artist create the fine details, like the angel’s face, that
are too small for individual pieces of glass?
We will show an example of a stained glass window that we made. Then the student
will be given the opportunity to make a stained glass window.
