Florence Nightingale: The Lady with the Lamp
In this lesson, your class will learn why people called Florence Nightingale the lady with the lamp. Your KS1 class will explore the improvements Florence Nightingale made at the hospital in Scutari (after the doctors reluctantly allowed women to assist) and how these changes impacted the wounded soldiers. They will learn about how she got her nickname and compare what the hospital at Scutari was like before and after Florence's arrival. There's even a chance for them to make a Florence Nightingale lamp of their own!
