In this Black Death Then and Now resource, students examine primary evidence from the 1348 plague pandemic that hit Europe to learn what the disease was like, where it came from, and how people reacted at the time. Several stations also force students to examine the plague from a modern lens to learn how modern science has taught us more and where outbreaks can still happen. This resource is a great way to connect medieval history to our lives today!
