Renaissance Biography Project

In this project you will take time to research and learn more about an individual from the Renaissance, Reformation, or Scientific Revolution. Choose an individual from the attached list and use the internet, library, and your textbook to find out more about them. To show your knowledge complete either a PowerPoint presentation or poster about your chosen individual including the following information.

To Include:
• Name,
• Birth and death dates
• Where they are from
• Major events of their lives
• Explanation of their importance to their time period (Renaissance, Reformation, or Scientific Revolution)

An example of excellent work would be a project that is completed neatly with all of the required information included. An excellent project would also be free from grammatical and spelling errors and be written in your own words (no plagiarism!). An excellent project would also include appropriate photos or illustrations.
