According to our “Special Days in February” list, February 15 is Galileo’s birthday (1564). I’ve checked and updated our resource list from our study 4 years ago. I’m excited to do another study on this incredible scientist with the boys today!

As we continue our homeschooling Middle Ages/Renaissance unit studies, we will be adding Galileo to our lessons. Not only will we be focusing on his inventions and discoveries, but also his character. He showed great respect for those he disagreed with. His willingness to speak out for his beliefs when such beliefs were considered heresy, is inspiring. It’s going to be an interesting study. I found fantastic links and want to share them with you.
