From Stone to Glass

Where Does Our Glass Come From?

In terms understandable to children, this DVD illustrates how glass, a widely used material, is made. The film shows, step by step, the development from rock to quartz sand, which, mixed with further ingredients, forms an important component in the making of glass. In order to give the children an exact idea of glass production, a glassblower is watched at his job. The accompanying material contains extensive suggestions and recommendations, such as songs, experiments, tips for assembly, games, mandalas, etc., both for a practical application of the topic in the classroom and for reinforcing the knowledge the children have acquired. Special emphasis was laid on an integrated learning experience in kindergarten life for the children to experience the often used material glass with all their senses. Thus, this DVD offers a basis suitable for child-oriented projects in kindergarten and early primary school, which take up and illustrate a topic familiar from the children’s everyday lives.
