Mapping the Viking World
Print out a map of Europe. Let’s work on the countries the Vikings came from.
- At the top of the map write the title: Viking Countries Map
- Colour Denmark, Norway, and Sweden
- Label the countries
- Mark and label their current capitals
- Label the bodies of water that surround them
SAVE this map for your portfolio.

Using a piece of cardboard, some duct tape and an empty milk jug, make a Viking shield. You’ll need to use a hot glue gun, so check with an adult. The video above and the project page are slightly different methods, but that’s okay! Look at them both and then create your own version!
Take a photo of your finished shield for your portfolio!
