Using a range of sources and historical data, learners investigate and record the spead of the Great Plague. This provides them with a god understanding of the methodology of the day along with developing their awareness of the varied types of views held at the time. Data rich, this activity also illustrates how destructive infectious diseases could be and provides the basis for much discussion about changes in towns and cities over time. There are various activities within the pack which allows for differentiation or extension of the study over a series of lessons. Examples of audio visual presentations created by my classes as a result of this study can be found on my youtube channel or via the schoolshistory.org.uk website.
