Here’s a Viking ship we made last week as we read and talked about the Vikings coming to North America – chapter one of This Country of Ours. We also watched “Vikings: Journey to the New World,” an interesting 40-minute film that we found available and FREE with Amazon Prime Instant Video.
We didn’t find a template to use, so we just looked at pictures and did our own thing with cardboard, skewers, paper, and tape.
In addition to This Country of Ours, we’re also using A Child’s History of the World, and Heritage Studies 2 for history. Some people have their criticisms about the evolutionists views presented by the author of A Child’s History of the World, but I’m excited about the opportunity to present this book and its theories to my students. I’ll elaborate on that later!
