Who doesn't love a fierce fighting Viking? I know my students LOVED this project!!! We studied the various characteristics of a Viking plus added all their tools of the trade. My students loved creating personalities for their Vikings, making them either a guy or a gal. Can you say CUTENESS overload??? The boys loved adding the details to their Vikings such as axes, hammers, spears, shovels.... just to name a few items. Girls added aprons, bows and braids.
What’s a Viking without a Viking ship? After making our adorable Vikings we needed to add some sort of transportation for them. Our second lesson in this fun PDF is Viking Ships. Students really love creating these and had a blast telling stories of where their ships would be traveling for their next Viking voyage.
These lessons are great for ages 5--8 but any age student can create awesome artwork with these directions.
This fun 22 page pdf contains 2 colorful lessons that are designed so that every child will be a successful artist. Creating time is approx. 90 minutes for each project.
