Reading comprehension about Leonardo, informative writing and revision of grammar

Reading comprehension about Leonardo, informative writing and revision of grammar

This animated Power Point comprises twelve slides and is useful when revising all aspects of grammar. The students are presented with a story about how Leonardo came to paint the Biblical characters of Jesus and Judas in his famous painting of The Last Supper. Students are required to answer questions from the text to identify nouns, adjectives and verbs, compound words and abstract nouns. They are then required to produce a piece of informative writing about da Vinci organising the information chronologically. As da Vinci had designed a parachute way ahead of its time, words beginning with the prefix para- are examined and pupils are required to match them to their definitions. Finally pupils are given some interesting examples of paradox to discuss with the group.This resource is intended to be used for revision of several aspects of grammar and literary understanding whilst also learning about the artist Leonardo da Vinci and his famous accomplishments.Suitable for ages 10+ of higher ability.
