Black Death and Modern Science: How Can We Learn More About the Plague?
This Black Death & Modern Science activity is included in the Black Death Bundle located here:
The Black Death Bundle! 2 Great Investigations, 1 Great Price!
In this highly-engaging activity on the Black Death and Bubonic Plague, students analyze three news stories to learn how modern science has helped us learn more about how the disease devastated Medieval Europe!
Students analyze three stories and follow one audio account to learn about how modern science has taught us more about the plague. Each article is analyzed with Common Core focused questions that are geared toward helping students answer the overarching question, "How has modern science helped us learn more about the Black Death?"
After students analyze and draw from the reports, students complete a writing assignment where they answer the overarching question and draw a picture that shows how scientists are uncovering more on the plague that wrecked Europe in the Middle Ages!
A key is included!
