This product is all about the Vikings, including an interactive notebook, Math activities, Language Arts activities, and a test to assess their knowledge at the end of the unit. While this is an interactive notebook, it is intended to be used alongside research or textbooks related to the topic of Vikings.
To accommodate different levels of learners, and different styles of teachers, I have updated this product to include two options for page inserts: fill in the blank and text that is already finished for both the student and the teacher.
Interactive notebook inserts include topics such as origins of the Vikings (geography), Viking exploration and raids(geography), Viking raiders (fill in blanks), Viking Society (Organizational flip-chart), Erik the Red & Leif Ericksson (organizational flip-chart), Vikings at work (Organizational cut & paste table), Viking Transportation (Fill in the blanks), Viking gods & goddesses (Fill in the blank and flaps), The Coming of Christianity (fill in the blank), Family Life (organizational flip chart and fill in the blanks), Viking culture (Fill in blank table), and Viking Warriors (fill in the blanks).
The unit is followed up by a 50 item multiple choice test.
To extend in Math, there are 3 and 4 digit addition regrouping exercises involving color coding to certain numbers.
To extend in Language Arts:
A pronoun activity requires students to replace nouns with pronouns.
A subject/verb activity requires students to choose the correct verb depending on a plural or singular subject.
A possessive pronouns and contractions activity requires students to choose the correct homophone in each sentence.
A prepositions activity requires students to identify the object of the preposition.
All activities include answer keys.
***In the Math and Language Arts activities, the Vikings hats have horns. You need to discuss with your students that the idea of horns on their helmets is a misconception. The clip art for those activities was limited. Thus, you can tell this misconception is widespread. Perhaps you can use this as a way to talk about misconceptions about Vikings. They are also portrayed this way in "How to Train Your Dragon." They actually never, as an entire group, wore horns on their helmets. However, they did try to look fierce, so some may have worn them (just as there are outliers in any cultural group).
