Vikings Unit Resources

One of the things I love about The Good & the Beautiful History is that we cover all four eras of classical history each year. As part of the second year, we spent a unit in the land of Vikings!  It was perfect, since it was so cold outside.  In between sledding sessions and hot chocolate, we did several crafts, wrote home-spun plays, and read together on the couch...
The kids took particularly to the Vikings and Norse Mythology, and thoroughly enjoyed making Viking costumes for re-enacting the Norse Myths.

Craft ideas:
The unit culminated in the creation of a Scandinavian project board for the co-op History Fair.

Pick up a printable copy of this unit in the Humanities Unit Study Bundle!

Includes seventeen unit studies covering history and language arts based topics. Each unit addresses a new topic, spanning ancient through modern history and various writing styles.
  • Each unit has introductory text, which will give the student basic background information about the topic at hand.
  • There are photographs and illustrations, and we have also included primary documents when available.
  • After this text, there are featured videos, which augment the background information and help make the topic more accessible for more visual students.
  • You will also find a short list of reading books.
  • There are vocabulary words, places, and people to identify.
  • Reading comprehension, critical thinking questions, and writing assignments are included.
  • We add fun with hands-on activities and extra videos to watch that will bring the era to life.
  • Some units also have cooking projects.
These studies are directed toward upper grades students, but some have resources for younger students so that the whole family can work together. Our family has used unit studies as curriculum for many years, and we hope that your family will enjoy these, too!
