This week, we are going to find out about life during the Middle Ages. In 1300's, Europe was gripped by a plague, similar to the Black Death. To understand why this happened, we need to know what life was like for people living at this time. Today, you will have two tasks.
Task 1: Have a go at the comprehension tasks.
Task 2: You are going to use sources to make some inferences to explore what life was like for different people. This will help you make up your own mind about why the The Plague spread so quickly. You are going to use the PowerPoint to get you started, then you will need to research further to find out a bit more using internet sources. Remember, think about the accuracy of information and whether it is biased in any way.
