Leif Ericson and his Vikings may have been the first Europeans to come to Newfoundland. Sail on a legendary journey in your own sturdy ship.
In about 1000 Leif Ericson traveled from Norway to Iceland to Greenland and on to the shores of today’s Newfoundland. The Vikings undoubtedly endured rough seas as they explored unknown waters. Imagine the ingenuity of those long-ago Norse shipbuilders! Find information and pictures of Viking ships and then create a replica. Here are a few suggestions.
<EM>Build the ship.</EM> Fold poster board in half. Use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to draw the ship’s body. The stems and sterns of Viking ships always were carved figures, usually dragons. Cut out your ship with Crayola Scissors. Color it with the colored pencils and Erasable Colored Pencils. Erase to create details and highlights such as wood grain and carvings.
<STRONG>Add oars.</STRONG> Color craft sticks with Twistables. Attach oars on both sides of the ship with Crayola School Glue.
<STRONG>Hoist the sail!</STRONG> Draw, color, and cut out a large paper sail and several flags. Glue flags to both sides of the ship. Glue the sail on a craft stick or plastic straw. Glue it in middle of the ship. Glue the ship’s ends together. Air-dry before you sail the high seas!
