Florence Nightingale is an important individual in history and these two boxes contains all the resources you’ll need to illustrate this to your pupils. The box includes a full outfit for Florence Nightingale which could be used as part of a role play exercise, where one child may take the role of Florence and have her classmates interview her about her experiences as a Nurse during the Crimean war. Artefacts are also included to illustrate the difference between the health service in Florence’s time and today.
