Leonardo’s 3D models – level 1

12-02-2016 15:00

Leonardo da Vinci was very talented. He painted the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper. He also drew very interesting things. He drew things like a helicopter and a diving suit.

People like his drawings. They turn them into 3D models. You can see these models in the Science Museum in London.

Difficult words: was (past of “is”), drew (past of “draw”), diving suit (a thing which you put around the body to go underwater).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about these models?
