Vikings: Trade vs. Plunder Persuasive TextQuick View

Vikings: Trade vs. Plunder Persuasive Text

Children will learn about Viking raids on monasteries in Northern England before writing a persuasive text. The text can be written from the perspective of a Monk or a Viking, and is meant to persuade (or dissuade) their audience - either Monks or Vikings - from trading with or plundering a monastery. 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).
