The Magical History Tour Unit 8

THE RENAISSANCE

“THE AGE OF DISCOVERY”

Sail with brave explorers like Magellan and Pizarro across vast oceans in search of new lands.  Or stay in Europe and go to a masked ball at the castle of Queen Elizabeth.  Read some Shakespeare, paint a portrait with one of the Renaissance masters, or help Copernicus figure out how the planets are moving in space.  You have entered the age of discovery.



This 11 X 14” poster is a great visual reference to hang on your classroom wall.  The Poster Pack also includes an 8½ X 11” black and white copy of the poster to print for each student.
