Added: 16 May 2014 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Reference

Comprehensive site on most aspects of Viking life. Covers who they were, their sea skills, their warrior nature, their towns and much more. Includes quizzes and classroom activity suggestions.

How it maps to the curriculum

SESE History

Strand: Early People /Ancient Societies

Strand unit: Vikings

Content objective:
This resource should enable a child to:

  • become familiar with aspects of the lives of these peoples
  • examine and become familiar with evidence we have which tells us about these people, especially evidence of these people which may be found locally
  • record the place of these peoples on appropriate timelines

Suggestions for use: Use as a learning centre or station during a unit on the Vikings. The interactive games and quizzes would be a great way to help students review in addition to expanding upon that knowledge base. The activity sections within each area are really great and will provide lots of ideas for class.
