When Florence Nightingale walked the wards at night in the hospital at Scutari to comfort the sick men, write letters home and check wounds, she carried an oil lamp like this one. Children can use this story paper to write what they know about the Lady with the Lamp, or have a go at some creative writing.
The Lady with the Lamp Story Paper
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.
