Task 1 Viking Sailors

Vikings were excellent sailors and could navigate the sea, using the sun and starts to guide them. 


Research Viking sailors and their boats. You could think about the following questions:

How did the Vikings build their boats?

Was there a difference between a warship and a trading ship? 



Design a Viking Longboat. 

Present it in whatever way you like.


You could... 

  • Use the templates below Template 1. Draw a design     Template 2.  Make a longboat 
  • Draw out your own
  • Collage it with images from magazines

It is up to you. Use your imagination!

If we were in school we would have made our tables into Viking Longships; hung sails from the ceiling and attached our shield designs to the backs of our chairs!
