Great Renaissance activity. Jump into inquiry-based learning with this engaging lesson on Brunelleschi, an early architect from the Renaissance. In this student-tested and approved activity, students are hooked as they enter a contest for the design of new doors on a university building, a contest very similar to one completed in the Renaissance.

In this resource:

  • Inquiry activity
