We live in Minnesota and have visited the greatly debated Rune Museum. Meanwhile we're also currently studying Vikings with my 3rd grader. So I thought it would be fun to practice writing in runes. This packet is excellently designed and a great easy resource that allowed me to present this activity to my 3rd graders as a fun enrichment packet.
