Leonardo da Vinci

leonardo-da-vinciAfter taking a break from our middle ages unit studies  this week to study spring weather,  we will be returning to them again next week.  We will be finishing up our artists lessons with Leonardo da Vinci.  The timing for this is perfect because his birthday is April 15.  That means that we can work some cake baking and decorating into our homeschooling day.

Below are the links we will be using for the da Vinci study

Biography, art gallery, games, quizzes, printables and more from here  http://www.gardenofpraise.com/art17.htm

Even though our library did not have Leonardo’s Horse I think we can still make good use of these lapbooks using what we found here   http://www.homeschoolshare.com/leonardos_horse.php
