Reader's Thoughts

Pam Porter

Great resource for grade school and middle school teachers. It includes numerous projects that can be done with children that are based on Leonardo da Vinci inventions.

Mohamed Alsaid

من زمن الاقطاع الى زمن النهضه.كان الاقطاعيون يملكون اراضى و اموال كثيره. و كان الفلاحين يعملون لديهم لعيشون و منهم من يعمل فى المصانع و الاعمال السياحيه للبلد. اجيال ورا اجيال يولدون و يعيشون ثم يتوفون. الحياه كانت سهله و مستقره و كانت منعزله. كل فرد يعمل فى جزيره لوحده.و تمر السنوات الى ان تم حدوث حروب بين هؤلاء الاقطاعيين و التأمر على بعضهم البعض. سكان الارياف بدءوا فى الانتقال الى المدينه لتحسين ظروفهم المعيشيه بعد تركهم للاراضى التى ظلوا بها لاجيال. فالمدينه الان تمنح لهم تعلم افكار جديده و و طرق للتجاره. لاكن المدن اكتظت بالسكان و الماكن الغير نظيفه و صالحه للعيش و هى ظروف مثاليه لانتشار الاويئه. فانتشرت الامراض و من بينها مرض الطاعون.


Fun activities! We loved the marshmallow geometric shape activity. Too bad the marshmallows I got were all melted together. It made for a sticky mess.


I think that all of these inventions are cool but they are a little space wasting and there is a constant need of stuff that is not a daily house thing

I loved all these activities, but we just didn't really get to them. There's too much to do!
