Learners • 5th grade class • Students ages 9-11 • I would use this art lesson in my 5th grade classroom to Introduce the life and works of Leonardo DaVinci in a brief art history lesson and incorporate the project into science and technology lessons by encouraging students to create their own inventions.

  4. Lesson Learning Objectives • Learner will recognize the contributions of Leonardo DaVinci. • Learner will invent a new machine for the 21st century. • Learner will create a model of the invention.

Explain how he was an artist, scientist, inventor, sculptor, mathematician, philosopher and architect. • Have students choose a partner and form groups no larger than three students to formulate ideas on a new machine that would make life easier in the 21st century. • Students will make a diagram of the machine and explain how it works. • Students will create a model of the invention with cardboard boxes and other found objects. • Students will paint/color the machine after it is assembled and add fabric, glitter, yarn ,buttons, etc… to finish the project. • Students will present the final invention to the class.

  7. Student Evaluation • Students should be able to identify who Leonardo DaVinci is and identify his works by telling you what their favorite works by him were and why in a brief 1-3 page report that is typed and double spaced with 12- point font in Times New Roman. • Students will be evaluated by their presentation of their inventions based on answering these questions: • What is the name of the invention? • What does it do? • How does it work? • How much will it cost? • Where could you find or purchase it?
