  2. 2. • Big Idea: Meaning and Objects • Grade Level: 3rd • Time: 2 hours, over two days

  7. 7. • Students watch or read Cinderella • Talk about the glass slipper and its significance • Discussion about stained glass windows throughout history – used in Medieval times in churches • possibly the same time period Cinderella was set in – since few people could read, they served to tell stories of scenes from the Bible – during the Renaissance, wealthy people wanted to have stained glass in their homes – became an art form
  8. 8. • Artist – Louis Comfort Tiffany – he began as a painter – used the technique of opalescent glass • stained glass with many blended shades and hues of each color – nature inspired him • preferred to create landscapes or nature scenes – he created not only windows, but also lamps, chandeliers, and other works that could be displayed in the home
  9. 9. • Stained glass windows often tell a story – look at pictures of stained glass windows and think of the story it is telling, then share our thoughts and stories as a class • in pairs or small groups, make a list of important objects and symbols in the story of Cinderella
  10. 10. • making a stained glass window which will tell the story of Cinderella by featuring the slipper and other objects and symbols from the fairy tale that each individual student thought were important • during the activity, I will keep pictures up on the screen of stained glass windows, and from the story of Cinderella
  11. 11. • Procedure 1. Draw the slipper on your window using black permanent marker • if you would prefer, draw on paper first, then trace onto the window 2. Around it, draw a few of the other important objects and symbols from your list 3. Fill any empty space with geometric shapes 4. Paint over the permanent marker outlines using the black puffy paint 1. Let dry (overnight) 2.

Let dry
  12. 12. Informal – During guided activity • student participation in discussion – During individual activity • walk around and observe • ask questions to check for understanding
  13. 13. Formal
  14. 14. • draw window design on paper first then trace onto plastic • use glass paint from a craft store • paint a jar, pot, cup or something else • attach string or clips to hang them on the window of the classroom • for students with disabilities or difficulties: – create stencils of shapes they might want to use (stars, moons, a clock, a dress, a pumpkin, etc) and let them trace – do the black paint for them if necessary
  15. 15. • Hang the stained glass windows on or near the windows of your classroom so the light can shine through them • Give students time to look at each other’s projects and make note of what they each chose to include & focus on – what the important parts of the story were to each individual student • Discuss other styles of glass art – Dale Chihuly blown glass
