This lesson allows students to become Viking traders sailing around Europe trading and selling in regional goods. The lesson initially teaches the students the importance of the long ship in allowing the Vikings to become incredibly successful traders. Then students become the Viking traders and chart there progress on a map and in a table in pairs. They then meet up with a different pair and share their experience. Students then must vote on how successful they believe the Viking traders were. The lesson has instructions for each task in the notes section.
