Travel back in time to the 1850’s with Mary Seacole, to both remember and explore her life and work. Listen to her story and experience life as a nurse during the Crimean war.

Explore the Victorian era and Mary’s place within it
Through improvisation, travel to the Crimea and Mary’s Hotel for the wounded
With the use of role play, become a soldier or nurse working during the Crimea
Remember Florence Nightingale
Perform a poem about Mary’s life with song, action, sound, and movement
Create a timeline to place Mary Seacole firmly within a historical time frame
