Leo, Don, Raph, and Mikey...those are the original four turtles. With this lesson you have students read through 6 historical figures from the Renaissance. Students will analyze the importance of each person, evaluate their impact on history, and then create a brand new turtle. It may sound silly, but it hits the three highest levels of Bloom's Taxonomy!
