The Black Death


Here is the latest Middle Ages podcast, along with gratuitous picture of people with bubonic plague.

I’ve been doing a “stations” strategy with my year 8s for the Friday double: podcast, textbook questions, crossword, computer stuff and a drawing activity. It seems to break up the ‘mob’ mentality, and get them working steadily.

    Great to hear it was helpful Tina. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to create your own, or get your kids doing it.

      Maia, if you google “black death” in the images section of google, you get heaps of images. Is that what you are looking for?
