Travel Destination: Italy

There are many thoughts brought to mind at the mention of Italy. Great food: pasta, risotto, and tiramisu; great architecture: Piazza San Marco, the Sistine Chapel, and the Tower of Pisa; great art: Birth of Venus by Botticelli, David by Michelangelo, and the Last Supper by Leonardo. These are just a few of these greats, many which are results of the renaissance.

What is the renaissance? Renaissance is defined as “the activity, spirit or time of the great revival of art, literature and learning…”( What a great idea to bring to the classroom! Teachers of young children are always introducing great books, ideas and people in the classroom. So add a twist and have a renaissance in your classroom. Just don’t forget to include the pizza and gelato!
