Our study of Vikings begins with a study of ships! The first chapter of our read aloud, Erik the Viking, describes a traditional Viking ship. The students try to draw a Viking ship by just hearing that chapter, never seeing anything! It’s quite a challenge. Then we research ships! We look at all the pieces of them: mast, figurehead, shields, oars, sail, and more and work on another drawing draft.
Riley and Jackson work on their figureheads, fierce monsters! Lola works on her sail.
Cameron adds details to the figurehead.
Henry adds ropes. Pietro works on his shields. Dominick adds a mast.
Soon, we will draw a final draft and add it to our classroom timeline.
