Black Plague Reading Worksheet
This is a simple, fascinating reading guide about the Bubonic Plague or Black Death. It explains how it began and spread, its symptoms, and the effect it had on European society.
It makes for an excellent homework or in-class reading assignment because it can be completed without any additional resources. Following the reading, students complete 7 reading comprehension questions of varying levels based on what they read. An answer key is provided for your convenience.
This download also includes a Google Drive digital version of the activity! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring a digital version of this resource into Google Classroom!
This resource goes very well with my Black Death Rules for Slowing the Spread Lesson that connects the plague to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Both activities can also be downloaded as part of the Europe's Middle Ages & Medieval Unit Bundle!
