Product Description
A worksheet for students to colour in and highlight as they learn about the Vikings in England, and where they get the name 'Viking' from. What does the word 'Viking' mean? Includes references to the Anglo-Saxons, Anglo-Frisians, Scandinavians, Victorians, and Old Norse. Could lead into a discussion of tribes, migration, and how groups of people are given names. Also touches on where our knowledge of history and language comes from, and how words become part of our everyday language. Suitable for a range of ages. As a standalone worksheet, or for wet break time, homework, or revision handout.

This resource was created as part of my ocean row around the coast of Great Britain, following the routes taken by the Vikings. If you would like to follow the expedition, there is a weekly film documentary series on YouTube (Sarah Rows Solo) and on Amazon Prime worldwide (search Sarah Rows Solo). I do live stream sessions of the boat build, and expedition on Twitter (@oceansproject @sarahrowssolo), and free virtual sessions for schools on Skype classroom. During the expedition itself between May and September 2017, students will be able to view the places I visit on my quest, in 360 virtual reality and to interact via a purpose built app. Follow the Great British Viking Quest expedition on social media using #GBVQ
