The resources include notes, resources and ideas for teachers working with students in Key Stages 1 & 2, including lesson suggestions and a pack of printable quotes to investigate with children or add to a display on the topic. Going beyond our initial project brief, we also created a document outlining opportunities for integrating aspects of Florence Nightingale’s story into the teaching of STEM curriculum topics at Key Stages 3, 4 & 5.

We also collated an inventory of online resources, bringing together images and videos from across the University of Nottingham’s existing online collections supported by links to relevant locations on Google Streetview, and a number of digital activities created especially for this project. These activities include:
