This resource includes two reading passages each about a page and a half in length. Both texts are illustrated and each includes a vocabulary activity and a separate page of comprehension/opinion questions. A full answer key is supplied for all objective work.
The passages of this resource are about the life of Leonardo da Vinci from his birth until his death.
The first text is titled “Young Leonardo da Vinci” Which covers his childhood, his apprenticeship and early career in Florence; the second passage is called “Da Vinci’s Later Years” and covers his time in Milan (until he left due to political uprisings), as well as his years in Florence, Rome, and finally, France.
