Make Your Own Bubo!

I have been teaching for over 20 years. During that time, I developed a creative way of bringing the Black Death to life in class---by giving a student the Black Death!  Let's just say, my background in theater really paid off.

Although I used to make and sell latex buboes for this lesson, that grew too cost prohibitive.  But don't worry, you can easily make your own bubo and be using it in class within a couple of days.

Follow the instructions at each tab above and--before you know it--you too will be bringing the Black Death to life!

 The lesson plans feature reading/writing activities, lecture, essay assignment and detailed instructions on how to use the bubo in class!

A new, updated 2013 digital version of lesson plans is also available. Includes ACT-style reading and assessment, plus a Common Core meaning of words activity. Only $9.99!
