This time around, I decided to do the tissue paper with a much younger group, 1st grade. Instead of doing individual stain glass pieces, we worked as a table group to make one large piece that would be cut apart.This is where multiple layers is best, cutting into the tissue is much easier if it is thick, especially for the younger grade levels.

This is one of those happy accidents that I discovered years ago, early in my teaching days. Someone had accidentally left the laminator rolling. Yep, the whole roll went through the laminator. Luckily it wasn't a brand new roll. But still, we all know how valuable the laminator is and once we run out of lamination for the year...that's it.

This is a project that I do with 3rd graders. Years ago when I would do the Original Works program at my last school, this is the piece that I would have done with my 3rd graders. Of course, it has evolved and changed over the years, but I feel like I get great results from it each time.
