This is a brilliant resource! My children loved learning about Florence Nightingale and they found it really interesting. We have linked it with the Microorganisms mini pack, to cross reference history with science. The timeline was great, as were the comprehension and spot the spelling mistake worksheets. I plan to use the colouring picture of Florence Nightingale as a picture for them to sketch using charcoals and shading for art. The pack covers so many areas of the curriculum, I would highly recommend it!
I must admit, I've never taught Florence Nightingale before, and am not planning on teaching the topic any time soon - but if I was, I'd certainly be very glad to have this pack! A very nice mixture of activities and learning resources.
Love it! Looking to to using it next time we study the Victorians. Any chance there could be a blank timeline where the children have to work out the date rather than finding out what happened on a specific date to support differentiation?
Thanks Anne! I have just added a new resource to this pack, based on your suggestion.
