History Resource Cupboard – lessons and resources for schools

1. Introduction: How does the climate help to explain the changing fortunes of the Vikings?

This activity serves to introduce the ‘big story’ of the unit.

You could use it in the first lesson of the unit, to help give students an overview of this unit on how climate helps to explain the changing fortunes of the Vikings.

Or, it would be a great homework activity: students could be tasked with reading the ‘story’ independently, and then answering the comprehension tasks at the end.

Help introduce students to the Vikings, the climate and how it impacted and changed their way of life.
