This is a thoroughly experiential lesson on the European Renaissance in which students go around four different stations set up in the classroom engaging in various things Renaissance men did, such as painting, sculpture, primary source translation and even sketching like Da Vinci. A sample station pic is provided here. Students here can get a general idea of what the Renaissance was about through this experience. But their conclusion will be more than just “it was an explosion of creativity”. They will be able to see hints of a rebirth of classical learning. Materials can easily be borrowed from your school's art teacher. By Creative Educator.
