An introduction to the Vikings- Year 4

An introduction to the Vikings- Year 4

***POWRPOINT, PRINTABLES, ACTIVITIES, LESSON PLAN and DIFFERENTIATED TASKS*** This resource has been a gem to start off our topic on the Vikings. Children begin this topic by coming up with a bank of questions that they want to know about the Vikings. This stimulates the children's interest within the upcoming topic and gets their creative juices flowing. This activity is then followed by asking children to discuss what they think a Viking looks like from what they've heard. The powerpoint can be used as a support to give children a basic insight into the Vikings and where they came from. Next, children are instructed to sort (in groups of 4) 10 statements into piles of true or false. This allows some group discussion and 'talk for understanding' to take place. (I always love to hear children's take on the Vikings). Finally, children are then introduced to how a longship looks in an interactive/game-like manner. It requires them to "sneak up" on a Viking and spy on their ship, then report back to their friends on what they look like. It's lots of fun and a great way to spark interest in a new topic.

Found Treasures: Aztec Inca Maya ClipArt-50 Pieces!

Found Treasures: Aztec Inca Maya ClipArt-50 Pieces!

Found Treasures "Aztec, Inca, and Maya" Clip-Art features a beautiful collection of restored, edited, and reformatted public domain images (now!) fit for classroom and product use! These incredible images are inspired by ancient peoples, and in some cases, by the ancients themselves! Enjoy a set of worry-free* selection of 50 images that have been through a variety of digital restoration and reformatting to make them perfect for projects and presentations! *No restrictions for United States sellers only. Status in other countries is unknown. Check your country's public domain laws if you live in another country. Images are from the 1930s and older (including ancient). Set Information: This set includes images that range from 1" to 8" in color, grayscale, and B/W. Due the nature of the images, most clip-art pieces are available in only one version. Images are drawn, painted, or photographs. Some images are taken from ancient sources, others from academic. All images are 300 dpi, png. Themes: This set showcases a variety of themes including but not limited to architecture, designs, mummies, idols, artifacts, tools, pottery, calendars, and more! Background: While viewing public domain images for references, I found myself in awe of the beauty, precision, and uniqueness of these spectacular images. It seemed to be a shame that many of these timeless images would go unseen when they had so much to offer students and teachers. While there were many fantastic pictures available, most needed a variety of edits and touch-up work to be suited for reuse. I decided it would be worthwhile to restore and share my "Found Treasures" in a format that would be better suited for projects .
