The featured craft from our Let's Go Geography curriculum last week was the Gokstad Viking Ship. Alyssa researched information about this ship using the websites provided. Norway is well-known for their prominent Viking heritage. She learned many other meaningful factoids during her research session.
Let me tell you a little bit about this art project. First, we gathered white, brown and blue shades of paper for the Viking ship. I printed the template patterns from the Printables section of the curriculum on the different colored paper for her to trace. The sails were printed on white, the ship was printed on brown, and the ocean waves were printed on blue paper.
My daughter cut out the waves and glued them in place starting in the middle of the page. She worked her way down the page. She also colored and cut out the sails. She colored the vertical stripes red and white. Then, the brown entire ship was lightly colored darker and decorated. She wrote Norway on the bottom of the page.
