My students enjoy learning new facts about the Renaissance from the website. I usually use this activity as a review or introduction activity for my middle school students and it takes at least one to two class periods for my students to finish. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.

The following people from the Renaissance are covered in this webquest:

Artists
Leonardo da Vinci
Michelangelo
Raphael
Rembrandt
William Shakespeare

Scientists/Inventors
Galileo
Johannes Gutenberg

Explorers
Christopher Columbus
Hernan Cortes
Vasco da Gama
Sir Francis Drake
Henry Hudson
Ferdinand Magellan
Francisco Pizarro

Famous Leaders
Joan of Arc
King Henry VIII
Queen Elizabeth I

The following questions are covered are in the webquest for each person from the Renaissance:

Occupation
The year the person was born
What country or city-state the person was born in
When and where did the person die
Most famous artwork/invention/place explored/countries ruled
What is the person most known for
Two interesting facts about the person
Two fun facts about the person

An answer sheet is not included, I just print off the biography from the website for each person.

I would like to thank Teaches Third in Georgia for the wonderful clip art.
