Lapbook, Books, Time-Line Game, and More
This book includes everything you would need to teach a unit on da Vinci. In addition to the lapbook and the timeline game, it includes all of Doing Da Vinci for Kids and Da Vinci: His Life and His Legacy. It also includes excerpts from Catherine's first three Da Vinci novels and Exploring Da Vinci's Last Supper. It also includes some pictures that are not in any of the other books.
The topics within the main portion of the book correlate to different periods of his life – and are laid out in the same chronological order they first appeared in my Da Vinci: His Life and His Legacy. I’ve included a one page overview of each of the periods of his life, so you have a context for them. You may, of course, study/teach the topics in any order you prefer.
Most of us think of art when we think of Leonardo da Vinci; in fact our minds usually go straight to the Mona Lisa or the Last Supper. But da Vinci did so much more than just art. He was an engineer, an inventor, an architect, a mathematician…The list goes on. He was the true “Renaissance man.”
