***Update - There is a whole unit BUNDLE available with this ebook with a Social Studies, Art History and 96 page Science Pack... over 200 pages in all http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Around-the-World-ITALY-BUNDLE-1218020 *****
This Around the World Unit is PACKED with information about Italy. Learn about currency, climate, biomes, food, culture, art history and more in this exciting slideshow that takes you to some of Italy's most exciting places.
This unit features brief "tours" of some of Italy's most notable cities and regions including Tuscany, Pisa, Milan, Rome and more.
Also included is a language page with words in Italian, notable inventors, historical facts and a brief description of the Renaissance art movement.
Additionally, since Italy has active volcanoes, I touched on volcanoes as a starting point for further discussion, and included a short discussion about IGNEOUS rocks, which come from volcanoes. I include examples of intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks, with pictures to show your students.
Also, I have added TIMELINE cards that will be included in each part of the Around the World series to make a giant timeline of world history. I've included highlights of major historical moments (starting with the Etruscans founding Rome, moving through the 2nd World War), Artist cards, Inventor Cards and other historical figures.
The last page has some sample craft ideas as well.
This is the first country in a series I am putting together on around the world.
It is pdf-based so it can be printed as a book and laminated for classroom use.
