Italy Printable (** for premium members only)
In celebration of their World Cup victory (and my recent vacation there) this week’s topic is Italy.
Italy is a republic in southern Europe known for its rich history, good food, natural beauty and
excellent soccer team.
Rome, Italy’s capital, got its name from the legend of Romulus and Remus, two orphaned twins
raised by a wolf. The Roman god Mars told the boys to build a city, but the two ended up at war
with each other. Romulus won, so the city was named after him. Highlights of this wonderful
BBC site include seven printable activity sheets, a quiz about Roman technology such as
aqueducts and arches, a Roman timeline, and a glossary of Roman terms from “amphitheater” to
Enchanted Learning: Italy
A terrific introduction to Italy for elementary and middle-schoolers, including an overview of
important country stats, along with lots of maps and flags to print and color. Other interesting
clicks are the coloring pictures of Italian art masterpieces by Michelangelo, da Vinci and
Raphael, and an overview of Italian inventions such as the battery, eyeglasses, parachute and
radio. Don’t leave without looking at the printable story books with simple Italian vocabulary
European Photo Album: Italy
In July, 2000, Elaine M. Doolittle took a twenty-two day tour of Europe with her husband and
daughter. This section of her annotated photo album covers Italy. Her adventure starts in the
north (“We crossed the Alps into Italy and passed some lovely villages.”) and heads south (“A
ferry took us to Venice, known for its canals in place of streets.”) all the way to Rome (“Rome
has many beautiful fountains.”) Follow Elaine to the Vatican City by clicking on its flag at the
bottom of any page.
