This richly illustrated theme consists of 11 lessons -- 8 on Florence Nightingale and 1 each on Mary Seacole, Queen Victoria, and Clara Barton -- plus a set of worksheets.
An extension to this lesson is available covering 7 other people who lived at the same time as Florence Nightingale--Alexander Graham Bell, Louis Braille, Mark Twain, Helen Keller, Thomas Edison, Jean François Champollion, and Albert Einstein. In addition, a unified version of this theme is available that includes all 18 lessons plus worksheets.
Florence Nightingale was born in Italy, grew up in England, and traveled and studied in Germany. Information on the 3 countries can be found in separate “Passport to the World” files.
The theme is designed for cross-curricular teaching of all subjects--including literacy, reading, writing, spelling, role playing and drama, science, geography, history, art and technology, music, math, dance and movement, and Circle Time. It was written primarily for lower-grade primary students, but it can be adapted and enriched for higher grades.
