School Resources

From anatomical drawings to botanical illustrations, maps to mechanical engineering plans, pictographs to artistic sketches and so much more, Leonardo’s drawings give us a glimpse into his endlessly enquiring mind. His fascination with the world around him is what continues to inspire us 500 years after his death.

This resource pack, developed through consultation with teachers, contains a range of activities, useful information and suggestions to enable you to use Leonardo’s ideas and works across diverse subjects. All associated activity sheets, downloadable resources and films are available via this ‘School Resource’ section.

Signposting to further resources includes the multi-award winning Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomy App. This includes an in-built mirror and translates his notes into English. This is rated suitable for ages 12 and above and is available on iTunes only.
