This Newsy.com video can serve as the springboard to discussions on Viking raids, Viking culture, and Viking exploration of the New World.
This lesson can be completed in one 50-minute class period.
NOTE: Some of the discussion questions in this lesson plan were inspired by Discovery Education’s The Vikings: Sea Raiders, Land Raiders lesson plan. A link to that webpage can be found in the related resources on the second page of this lesson plan.
