We are going to create a group project about the Vikings. In class, we have chatted about how to use this blog to help you to research your project. Remember! Everyone will work together on Section A. Everyone may pick one or two topics to research from Section B.

  • Use your own words (paraphrase).  You may type or use neat handwriting.
  • Use labelled pictures (diagrams) and/or sentences to show what you know about Viking life.
  • Include a bibliography at the end of your project, listing websites/books you used for research.

These websites are a great place to start your research:



SECTION A:    Everyone works together on this part     

  • In your own words, explain why the Vikings left Scandinavia and came to Ireland.

  • On a map of Ireland, show the places where Vikings settled: Dublin, Limerick, Waterford, Wexford, Cork.
  • Explain at least one reason why they chose these were good locations to settle down.
