You are to write (at least) 5 diary entries from a poor person in London in 1665. The plague has just come to the city. You live in a small house with 4 members of your family. One of them comes home ill one night. What will happen?

Include the following:
– What you would know about the Black Death (talk about its history)
– How you would feel, knowing people were dying of the Black Death
– What you would think was the cause
– Symptoms
– What would happen to anyone who became infected (including what would happen to their family)
– What happened to the bodies of the dead
– How many people were dying
