Activity Overview


The Enlightenment and Scientific Revolution were driven by people who dared to think outside of the box and challenge what they had been taught. In order to understand how these events developed and who played an influential role, students can create mini biographies of the main thinkers of the Enlightenment, or the Philosophes. Students will detail each thinker's background, beliefs/ideas, and the long-term impact..

The chart must include the following Enlightenment thinkers:

  • Voltaire
  • Baron de Montesquieu
  • Mary Wollstonecraft
  • Jean Jacques Rousseau
  • Bonesana Beccaria
  • Denis Diderot

Students may also want to research additional Enlightenment thinkers and contributors to the Scientific Revolution and compare and contrast the different ways of thinking that emerged during this time.
