This slideshow helps elementary students quickly learn about famous landmarks, food, artists, and the culture of Italy. This slideshow can be used at the start of a unit about Italy or the Renaissance. It can be printed out and used for student research. You will also find 4 questions at the bottom of the slideshow that can be used to review the information students have learned.

This file comes as a PDF and cannot be edited. This slideshow can be opened in the TPT Education software to add, delete or modify pages. For your students, I created a free EASEL activity that they can use to answer questions, highlight and circle important points, and write about the lessons they learned. This is included in the download.
