Their task was simple - examine the contents of 7 evidence boxes and surmise whether they were looking at a Cause, Symptom or Cure for the Plague.

Some of the evidence, such as the leeches, rats or crushed emeralds, caused some serious head-scratching but the children very quickly came up with some weird, wacky and often very clever ideas!
