Design a Viking Norse sword with runes as a rune master!

These runes are Elder Futhark runes, an early alphabet of the Vikings or Norse people. The activity page features background information about Norse beliefs of how runes were magical and ways they were used historically. Students compose a message and translate it into the runic alphabet and decorate their sword with them. If students translate the title on their paper into English from the runes, it reads "Rune Master."

You will notice some English alphabet letters are not represented as runes on the page- that is because those sounds are not represented in Elder Futhark so there are no corresponding runes. Students are instructed to either leave out those letters or substitute a different rune for those missing letters if they are needed.

This activity can be used in conjunction with history of Vikings and Norse people, early exploration of Vikings and Leif Eriksson, Norse mythology, a literature unit study of Beowulf, or with Anglo-Saxon history.
