Westward With the Vikings!

Students identify Norse explorers, considered by many historians to be the earliest Europeans to sail to Newfoundland. Then they recognize the superior craftsmanship of a Viking sailing ship that would have been needed to withstand the long, arduous voyage. Students also demonstrate knowledge of Leif Ericson and his Viking explorers and sailors by crafting a paper Viking ship with sail.

Melanie B.
I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
