This PowerPoint contains 14 slides of information and pictures to help students understand who the vikings were, what they did, why they did what they did, and cultural and religious values. I used this PowerPoint as an intro to Norse Mythology, which you could also do. This PowerPoint would work for a History class on the history of the Vikings, too!
Names of Slides:
Raids (contains map with routes taken!)
Places they Raided: Churches
Foreign Lands for Valuable Goods
Means of Travel (2 slides)
Farming Food and Livestock
Woman in Viking Culture
Men in Viking Culture
Good luck and have fun with it!
