Famous Figures of the Middle Ages & Renaissance
In government schools, history tends to be a read-only subject. Thankfully, however, your home-schooled children have options. If you have a child who dreads reading but loves art and drama, the Famous Figures series is the perfect history supplement.

Each meticulous Famous Figures of the Middle Ages & Renaissance illustration is based on authentic mosaics, paintings, and sculptures. Easy-to-assemble colored characters are printed on wood-free heavy cardstock with perforated pages for trouble-free removal. Cut out the figures, punch holes where directed, attach some common fasteners, and your Famous Figures of the Middle Ages & Renaissance characters are ready to take center stage as your child reenacts the time periods.

If your student is an avid artist, she will be pleased to discover that a colorable version of each figure is also included on the same sturdy cardstock. Fill in each figure with hues as realistic or exotic as you wish.

Famous Figures of the Middle Ages & Renaissance includes figures of 21 key people from the time period, including Justinian I, Theodora, Charlemagne, Leif Eriksson, William the Conqueror, Richard the Lionheart, Genghis Khan, Francis of Assisi, Marco Polo, Suleiman the Magnificent, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, Christopher Columbus, Isabella I, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Martin Luther, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare, and Galileo Galilei.
