PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is an informational text, reading and writing biography unit for middle school students. It would be a great resource for an Art, English, or Social Studies class.

Included are:
Four reading passages with comprehension and vocabulary questions, a small research project and a multiple choice quiz.

--- The first text covers Leonardo da Vinci’s family background, childhood, and apprenticeship with Andrea del Verrocchio.
--- The second passage is about his early years as an artist in Florence during his twenties.
--- The third passage concentrates on his time in Milan under the patronage of the duke of Milan, his leaving that city and his return to Florence.
--- The last text details his later years when he once again goes to Milan and then to France, where he died.

All four of the biographical passages have questions (comprehension and opinions) on the right side of the page (the texts and the accompanying questions can therefore be used in class as bellringer activities). Each one also has a “Language Use” activity and/or a short writing assignment.

--- The multiple-choice quiz based on the four text includes two questions from each passage.

--- Rounding off the resource is a short writing activity: students are guided with a “5W and an H” format to research the life of da Vinci’s teacher, Verrocchio. All student work pages are accompanied by an answer key.
