Florence Nightingale

This afternoon we learned some more about Florence Nightingale. We looked at the conditions in the hospital as she arrived and then talked about how she improved them. We worked with a partner to think of questions we would like to ask Florence about the hospital. Then we did some role play.

Here are some of our questions for Florence.

After our role play we learned about Florence Nightingale being called ‘The lady of the lamp’. We made our own lamps.

Can you remember the answers to these questions?
What was the name of the war?
Where was the hospital?
What did Florence Nightingale see when she first went into the hospital?
How did Florence Nightingale Nightingale improve the hospital conditions?
Why was she known as ‘The lady of the lamp’?
