In our history study, we have made it up to the Viking age. We did a lapbook last week on vikings. We read a lot of library books, including the Magic Tree House book “Viking Ships at Sunrise” and a much more advanced (and more enjoyable!) book called “Rolf and the Viking Bow.” My sons have also done some neat drawings of vikings and ships.
I like to create our own lapbooks and will be doing that for our next one (check back to see what it is!), but this one was completely from a Hands of a Child project pack.
Find it at CurrClick.
Below are some pictures. I love the cover designed by my 7 yo son. It says “No Horns”. We learned that vikings didn’t have horns on their helmets!
Timeline of events, clothing, vocabulary, family life, weapons,sagas, societal classes
