Vikings: Monastery Invasion BUNDLE

Vikings: Monastery Invasion BUNDLE

This BUNDLE allows children to learn about Viking raids on monasteries in Northern England - and the 793 CE attack on Lindisfarne in particular. The persuasive 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. The narrative text can be written from the perspective of a Monk or a Viking during the raid of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in North East England in 793 CE. 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).
