Making Stain Glass Baubels

We made out own stain glass baubles today.  It is amazing how much the kids can learn from an activity like this.  For example they have learnt to identify copper and lead and understand about the melting point of lead compared to copper and how the lead can be used to join other metals.  They have learnt about cleaning the metals to make good joining points and why we use flux.  They have improved their soldering skills and of course been able to be creative with glass and colours.
