  2. 2. <ul><li>Leonardo was born in 1452 in Vinci, Italy.His father was a lawyer and his mother was probably a peasant girl. He was never married and some writings suggest that he was gay. </li></ul><ul><li>Da Vinci was an Italian painter, architect, draftsman, sculptor, engineer and inventor. </li></ul><ul><li>He was very clever at what he did and we say that he enjoyed it too. </li></ul><ul><li>He died in 1519 at the age of 67 at home in France. </li></ul>His Life
  3. 3. <ul><li>Leonardo was the inventor of many modern day things. In his time he thought up the inventions believing that one day there might be the available sources for the inventions to be made. He made diagrams and plans for many things such as planes and helicopters. He also was the original planner of war machines like the army tank and the machine gun. Of course many things did not work with the original plans so they played around with many materials to make it perfect. </li></ul><ul><li>He has also invented such simple things that developed into bigger better inventions. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of these were thread cutters, crossbows and catapults. </li></ul>Leonardo,The Inventions
  4. 4. <ul><li>During his short life he made discoveries and attempts for humankind to finally understand the matter and anatomy of their own body. He succeeded but it took many revolting operations and years of scientific research. After dissecting 30 male and female corpses of varying ages he finally found out the way a human body works. It was a remarkable expedition, as he was the first scientist in history to finally discover the human body matter. </li></ul>Leonardo's Discoveries
  5. 5. <ul><li>He also discovered many things such as tides and moon observations. Leonardo was the first to discover the ancient riddle of Earthshine. Earthshine is when you can see a quarter of the moon and very faintly behind it you can see the faint outline if the full moon. He was very wise and loved nothing more than to study and to discover things. As you have probably guessed he lived a very busy life. </li></ul>Leonardo and His Discoveries
