Rose Window display October 21, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 7:12 am

Please visit the special installation of 5th grade rose windows in the library lobby.  The 5th graders learned about radial symmetry, noting it in everyday objects such as snowflakes, flowers, pies, dinner plates, and ceiling fans.  They then learned about Gothic architecture and stained glass, particularly rose windows.  The students made their own versions of rose windows by covering the cardboard discs in aluminum foil and tissue paper.  The black tracery lines of the rose windows were drawn in marker.  And they’re double-sided!
