In these two lessons, grades 5-8 will learn about the large stained-glass rose window in Notre Dame Cathedral built with radial balance. They will create their own window out of black construction paper and colored tissue paper. In the second lesson, they finish the project by gluing the tissue paper onto the construction paper.
