    Students learn about, or review, the Black Death (Plague) by reading a primary source with 9 questions and 5 creative tasks (creating a museum exhibit, making "Warning: Plague Here" signs, discussing how people would rebuild their town and lives after such devastation, and more!), by reading and analyzing 4 brief contemporary sources on the plague, and by completing a reference sheet and review. The reference sheet resource has a page and a half for students to read and 8 comprehension tasks including: putting maps in chronological order, writing news headlines, considering point of view, analyzing primary source quotes, writing a retrospective piece, and writing sample test questions. They would both be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate! See the preview for a closer look!

    Sample primary source questions include:

    --What was the cruel policy that all the living adopted?

    --Write a 4 sentence summary of the section titled "The Signs of Impending Death."

    --How was the plight of the lower and middle classes even more pitiful to witness?

    --What do you think the most positive change was, if any, for a nobleman, a monk, and a peasant?

    To recap, this includes:
