This is a great slideshow to show elementary students at the beginning of a unit on Renaissance art from Italy or Italian culture. It puts the country in perspective for K-5 students and gives them an overview on some of the highlights of Italy. This download comes with the slideshow in BOTH a PowerPoint and PDF version.
This slideshow includes:
a map of Italy
popular foods: pasta, pizza, gelato
a few basic Italian phrases to learn
differences between Rome, Florence, Pisa, and Venice and their famous tourist destinations
famous Renaissance artists: Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael Sanzio, and Leonardo da Vinci
**I actually lived in Italy for a semester and studied art there so the photos and information are coming from someone who has been there!**
