Vikings: Battle Modifications with Working Scientifically with littleBits LKS2

Vikings: Battle Modifications with Working Scientifically with littleBits LKS2

Children will look at the history of Viking warfare and weapons during their invasion of the United Kingdom. Children will then design their own defence or weapon modification with littleBits based on Viking design. In the past, I have introduced this lesson dressed as a Monk in a Monastery with the lights off and candles lit. I play audio in the background of Monks singing (link provided) before acting frightened at the arrival of Vikings coming ashore (link provided). This unit is bundled with Working Scientifically objectives for Years 3 and 4. An editable digital links for sharing on Google Classroom and Seesaw available in zip files with download.

It bundles The Girl Who Drank the Moon Novel Study with STEAM packs about designing and making a machine with littleBits; creating your own paper; and making a flip book of Fyrian’s growth. ABOUT THE NOVEL: Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna’s thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge–with dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth’s surface. And the woman with the Tiger’s heart is on the prowl . . .
