Our Vikings lesson plan introduces students to the history of the Vikings who lived in Northern Europe during the Middle Ages. The Viking ships, clothing, shields, and other objects will pique the students’ interest as well. During this lesson, students are asked to complete a fun activity in which they use the Viking’s Rune alphabet symbols to create a message for another student. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify the Vikings, the life of a Viking, Vikings influence and impact on Britain during the Middle Ages.
