The Renaissance Thinkers: With History Projects for Kids

ByDiane C. Taylor

The Renaissance Thinkers with History Projects for Kids introduces readers ages 10 through 15 to the biographies of five influential scientists and philosophers of the Renaissance era, including Filippo Brunelleschi, Niccolò Machiavelli, Nicolaus Copernicus, Thomas More, and Francis Bacon. All of these men made huge leaps in philosophical and scientific thought and introduced concepts to the world that have resonated for centuries. Alongside the biographies of these men, the contributions of women and non-Europeans, who have been historically marginalized and ignored, are highlighted and explored in a way that represents the true diversity of the Renaissance world. Critical-thinking projects, fun facts, primary source illustrations, and links to online resources encourage kids to think creatively about the cultural, political, and social forces at work in their own lives, while deepening their understanding of a crucial time period. Even without a time machine, learners can experience the Renaissance!
