Here's an interesting activity to get the kids thinking and writing creatively - can they imagine they are a soldier in the Crimean War who has been treated by Florence Nightingale and write her a letter thanking her for her care?
A Letter To Florence Nightingale Worksheet
Florence Nightingale was loved by the men she served as walked the wards at night with her oil lamp, stopping to help the wounded and give comfort. Here is an oil lamp like the one she carried, for the children to colour in.
We thought a poster of an oil lamp might be useful for your Florence Nightingale displays. This would also make an interesting cover for a Florence Nightingale project.
