by Mikael Aringer, Western Kentucky University


This webquest was designed and developed to guide higher level elementary students in learning many interesting facts about the everyday lives and culture of the Vikings. The students will work in groups, and individually, to research and write about many different aspects of the Vikings, such as: Viking history and archaeology, family, clothing, farms, homes, food, law, writing, warriors, ships, and raiding and exploring. The students are guided to pre-read specified sections of their resource book, "The Vikings"- by Rosemary Rees.(@ 2002, Heinemann Library, Chi. IL.)
The primary purpose of this webquest is to engage students in diverse activities geared towards building literacy skills (reading, writing and oral). Several research-based, active literacy instruction strategies have been incorporated: Fishbowl Discussions, Anticipation Guides, Text Impressions, Vocabulary Log, and Create-a-Test.
I believe students will be actively engaged and stimulated to learn as much as possible about the Vikings, through several well-designed and interesting websites, intermixed with a few fun activities like playing the Viking Quest game, or the Dig It Up game.
