In this activity, students can collaboratively research significant figures of the Renaissance (da Vinci, Mirandola, etc...).
In the past, I have copied this into a collaborative google doc (using a shareable can edit link for students to access). Students then work together on the same digital document to research the figures, where each student choose a significant figure. In the end, they will have created a quick guide on the the most influential figures of the Renaissance.
Depending on the class size, you can have students pair up or add more figures to the list.
Extension: You can use the AP European History curriculum to add reflection questions at the end of the document that they all would answer using the information they found on each figure.
