We're studying Vikings right now in History (we introduce each time period chronologically). We began by reading from the Usborne Encyclopedia of World History, then we read the Usborne Vikings Beginner Series book. We were able to explore some of the internet links together, which was fun. Today, we found our Viking name at this link. The boys are Nikalas Leafslayer and Adwend Bloodaxe (Adwend was particularly pleased with his name). We also made Viking shield's today out of an old cardboard box (the boys are pictured with their shields in dangerous Viking poses - yeah, I know, there was no Star Wars in Viking times ~~ lol!). History is so much fun!!
