This activity requires your students to form a hypothesis about the plague doctors choice of protective wear and equipment.  It requires them to examine a photo of plague doctors from the 1300s and to read a short text about perceived and actual causes,cures and the spread of the plague.  After having done this students are asked to write an hypothesis about why plague doctors chose to dress this way and how effective they think it might have been.

 

A great activity to help your students develop the historical skills of perceptions, interpretation, empathy, analysis and use of sources, explanation and communication.  Useful also for relief and substitute teachers.

 

This download includes the student instruction sheet, the narrative and a 'planning to write' page. 

 

This activity is well supported by the History Explorers Resource Pack - The Black Death.  This pack contains articles which students can use for research, extensive activity suggestions, black line masters and source analysis activities.  It is available from the History Explorers store on Teach in a Box.  Why not explore it and the other fantastic resources on offer today.  Happy exploring!
