Marco Polo and the Silk Road

RACES: The reopening of the Silk Road helped the spark and Renaissance. The Silk Road help the by helping the Renaissance getting more stuff to sell and also helping them travel easier. Also in the text after the Black Death people had more stuff to trade and more stuff came in for the market to sell and more people were able to get what they wanted.

Italian Trade Cities (Florence)

RACES: The trading was important for the centers because so they had more valuables to trade for the market and for the market to sell. The location of the Italians trade cities allowed them to flourish as trading centers by traveling and easier to travel and more protection also there were more valuables for them to trade. The city of Florence able to help spark the Renaissance by protecting them getting more valuable stuff to tradehem with and helping them getting more stuff and adding money to make the city better.

Rediscovering the Past (Greek and Roman)

It helped the Renaissance develop classical ideas. The Greek helped developed the Renaissance with good ideas because they wanted them to make arts about religious and nonreligious art. In document 2 it said that they wanted non religious and religious arts. That is what it said in document 3 and 2. That is why they help Renaissance with good ideas.

Medici Family

The Medici family made the city better and also add more money to make the city batter and look great and good. That is why there city is so good looking and looks great. They add so many money that they had art work and education and architecture for the city or the country. They add so Mandy money for the city that other people that had money started doing it that is what the Medici family did for the cities.

Rediscovering the Past

The Greek and Romans classical ideas made stuff great and the development of the Renaissance help the Renaissance learn more. The Renaissance learned more about the artist and learn more about art. The Renaissance had more stuff have to trade. Also had more experience of human bodies and they even made art work of them.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci was an Artist he was the most famous painter or artist. Peopl said that his arts was the best he created great painting. He mostly focused on the human form and human body. He was super good at painting and he was famous and his painting was so famous that he called himself a genius. Also Leonardo Da Vinci wrote with his left hand to make it not look sloppy he wrote backwards so people had to use a merrior to read it backwards.


Michelangelo was a great design and artist he mad statues that were very high and tall. He was super creative and he made so many statues that he became famous and he bacame super cocky. The was so cocky that he did most of the stuff and things by himself and he wanted no help. He even made a greatest art on the cealing. He did it by himself because he was cocky and because the people that was asigned to help was rushing him and making him work harder.

Paper And Printing (Johann Gutenburg

The Paper printing was that they had to use animal skin to write. Then they created letters and ink so they can stamp it on the animal skin. Then they created paper then after that they pressed the paper on the letters so it could stamp on the paper then after that they had to wait for the paper to dry and so they could stamp the other side of the paper. Then after that they will use the paper and they will kinda organize the stamp or the paper.

Renaissance Writing (William Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare's writing reflected the ideas of humanism. William Shakespeare reflected humanism by helping humanism with languages and new words Williom Shakespeare created. I know that this is the reason how it helps the humanism because in the text it said Williom Shakespeare invented common phrases such as fair play also a common word such as lonely. I know that this is a reason why it could help humanism because he was probably responsible for more than 2,000 English words that he created or invented. William Shakespeare writing reflected the ideas of humanism. By creating comedies, tragedies, and histories. I know this because in page# 317 is said that William Shakespeare created more than 30 comedies, tragedies, and histories. I know this because because it says in page# 316-317 that is how ik it said that he made a lot of comedies and he made a lot of words that is how it helped humanism.
