I think that all of these inventions are cool but they are a little space wasting and there is a constant need of stuff that is not a daily house thing
I found this book as I was searching for projects students could make during a school STEM night. I loved the connection between teaching them about both STEM and an amazing artist/inventor from history together. What I appreciate about the book is that is can be used on many different levels. You are able to learn much more about da Vinci and his life and ideas as well as have fun. I could easily see a student getting this book and just looking at the pictures and projects and trying some of th...
My Bad. I didn't read carefully. This book is for juveniles. Age 9+. So in it's defense, I would have loved this as a father son goof off book. I would have loved this just to read as a kid. However. I was looking for like a backyard ballista or some such. Maybe a glider. Not a pinhole camera and arts n crafts for (Very young) boy scouts.
This book has very interesting information about Leonardo's life. But, the directions on the projects aren't detailed enough, and they rarely worked for us. It is still interesting to read about the projects even if you don't do them.
Read for summer reading. Bad
We used this to pick out some hands-on projects to do along with our homeschool study of Leonardo da Vinci. It's got some good options, along with a chapter about each one.
Good book that covers a lot of Leonardo's inventions and fun projects one can do while reading about them. I found the water shoes interesting.
Amazing Leonardo da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself by Maxine Anderson introduces readers to Leonardo da Vinci through hands-on projects that explore his ideas. Most of Leonardo's inventions remained as sketches in notebooks, but this book shows how to build them using common household supplies. It has many various types of print that really draws the reader's attention to the different topics.Amazing Leonardo da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself by Maxine Anderson includes a gloss...

I got the book for my son, but I couldn't tear myself away from it over breakfast this morning.I found the bit about him playing practical jokes on his friends to be most amusing, but I most admit I'm glad they didn't give directions on how to use bellows to fill a room with a sheep intestine. Not that my son would touch a sheep's intestine, but still, yuck.I have already decided that if I get to take certain items with me to a deserted island, a chicken will have to be one of them. I need to ma...
In my research for my next book [ Lexi and Leonardo and the Deadly Secret ], I encountered this book, Amazing Leonardo da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself. This is a book that any creative, middle-grade teacher could use to inspire students. What child wouldn't want to make a camera, a monster mask, their own tempera paints, a perspectograph, or invisible ink! There are also other projects that are more challenging. The experience shows what an original thinking scientist Leo was.
This book was very well written, and explained the life and accomplishments of Leonardo DaVinci in a clear and easy to understand way. It had a lot of simple experiments that were similar to those that Da Vinci performed. It was more of a 5th or 6th grade level and had very basic information.
Excellent book about da Vinci and his inventions. The build it yourself projects are fairly complex (more so than the Ben Franklin book in the series), so this book would best fit middle schoolers on up. Younger children would need a lot of help from an adult.
Great resource for grade school and middle school teachers. It includes numerous projects that can be done with children that are based on Leonardo da Vinci inventions.
I loved all these activities, but we just didn't really get to them. There's too much to do!
Fun activities! We loved the marshmallow geometric shape activity. Too bad the marshmallows I got were all melted together. It made for a sticky mess.
