1: THE BLACK PLAGUE "DIARY OF ALISA" | BY Katie Rhodes | Eyer Middle School | The dance of the dead

2: Friday, March 4, 1346, Dear Diary, My dad came home from work today all happy because business is great, so mom made some cake. That night dad started vomiting so he went to bed early. Mom and I are worried but she said to just go to bed and thats what I did. | This is dad cutting wood at work

3: Saturday, March 5,1346, Dear Diary, today mom and dad woke up with headaches. So I made them some lunch thats what time they woke up. We started talking about my baby sister that is living with grandma and grandpa, just until this thing called the black death is over. The black plague spread because black rats on ships were bit by flies who bit the people and spread it around. Her name is Alessandra and she is only three years old.I also have a little brother named Angelo and he's 2 years old. They said that they can come home in three days because the doctors said that no one is getting the black death any more I'm really happy. | One of the symptoms

4: Sunday, March 6,1346 Dear diary, today my mom and dad started vomiting, have aching joints, headaches,and feel nausea, so they took their temperature IT WAS 101 AND GOING UP. They also have black fingers. I'm really scared because they have the symptoms of the plague. | What happens to your fingers when you have the plague

5: Monday, March 7, 1346 Dear diary, mom and dad went to the doctor today and found out that they have the black plague. Before they left they had a big bump on their necks. They are one of the last people who have it. The doctor said that they will die in three days since they got the black plague, and thats only 2 days away. Also my baby sister and baby brother are coming in 2 days thats why I'm happy. | you get a bump on neck cause of plague

6: Tuesday, March 8,1346 Dear diary, mom and dad said I have to stay at a friends house for today but I can come and visit. It makes me mad because I can't even stay near them and their dying its going to be a really sad 2 days. What are Alessandra, Angelo and I going to do I hope we get to stay with grandma and grandpa. They have a really big house they are one of the richest people in town. I'm going to try to sleep tonight. One more thing when I went to visit they had bumps all over their face. | small bumps on face

7: Wednesday, March 9,1346 Dear diary, I went to visit mom and dad and my baby sister and brother were there. We went in the house and all said goodbye to them it was really sad. They died 5 minutes later,so grandma told us to get our stuff and to live with them so we did. The affects of the plague on Europe were that 1/3 of the population died. | This was my family before the plague with both parents | This is my family after the plague at my grandmas house with our aunt
