5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun classroom addition 27 Jun 2007
By teacher
Format:Paperback
I ordered this book as an addition for my Renaissance unit. It includes some really fun hands-on activities that are exciting and demonstrate the varying interests of Leonardo Da Vinci. There is also background information before each activity. I am looking forward to the projects my students will create!

1.0 out of 5 stars Unsafe for children and adults 13 Feb 2010
