Amazing Leonardo Da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself (Paperback) (Maxine Anderson)
About this item
From armored tanks and gliders to "plastic glass" and drawing machines, this interactive book explores the incredible mind of Leonardo da Vinci through hands-on building projects and activities. Most of Leonardo's inventions were never made in his lifetime and remained sketches in his famous notebooks; kids examine some of these original sketches and learn about the models he made of his inventions. From there they delve into detailed step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and templates for each project, which are interspersed with historical facts, biographical anecdotes, and trivia. Most of the building can be done using simple household supplies: construction paper, tape, markers, glue, cardboard tubes, aluminum foil, and cardboard boxes. Background about the Renaissance as a period of remarkable achievement in art and science appears throughout the book.
From armored tanks and gliders to "plastic glass" and drawing machines, an interactive book explores the incredible mind of Leonardo da Vinci through hands-on projects and activities that can be made, for the most part, using simple household supplies. Original. $10,000 ad/promo.
