Tudor Medicine - Instructional Writing - Black Plague
A practical lesson which allows the pupils the opportunity to create their own cure for the Black Plague. Basing their descriptions on previous learning of Tudor Medicine, pupils will plan and create their own cure. Resources include introductory PowerPoint in addition to instructional writing mat encouraging the pupils to use adverbs, and imperative verbs. A flow chart resource is also provided for the pupils to plan descriptions for their ingredients - previously I have done this on post-it-notes. Final resource is a list of 7 items that I have previously given the children to mix to create their cure.

Pupils should have the ingredients visibly in front of them at this stage and will then mix ingredients together to see the reaction produced.

A highlight of my year!
