Lesson 2

(an adult will need to help share this lesson, discussion and drama) 


Share the painting of a battle from the Crimean war, playing the battle sounds in the background, if possible. Choose one character from the scene to be. What would they be able to see, hear, feel, smell. With the sounds playing children role play as though they were in the battle, instruct them to become injured and fall, laying in position.  Stop the sounds and ask the children to share their thoughts- what would happen to the injured soldiers now. (Introduce the idea that nurses were so important to help these soldiers, just as they are today when we are sick.)
