PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this activity is to familiarize students with the archaic forms of medical care during the Middle Ages and also the cruel forms of torture. After reviewing these topics, students will synthesize information to understand why the Enlightenment was truly “life changing.” This lesson provides two ways to explore the information. The first lesson allows students to read and then summarize one form of medieval medicine or torture. A “learning” wall is then created where students share what they learned with the class. The alternate activity is a simulation where students draw a slip and tell the class what happened to them when they either sought medical care or committed crimes in the Middle Ages.

Objectives:
Students will be able to identify characteristics of medieval medicine and torture.
Students will understand how Enlightenment thinkers changed life for the better and helped society leave the “Dark Ages.”
