What educators are saying

Students were engaged, the slide show was great and hit major points. I used the rose window project as a spring board into a more expansive project. It was a good purchase overall!
This has been extremely helpful for my Gothic Architecture lesson. The kids are also going to design their own gargoyles, so this was perfect!
