  1. That looks like an awesome unit study! We haven’t gotten to Vikings yet, but when we do we may have to use some of these ideas.

  2. I’m curious Claire, are you going to change anything on the pacing compared to your first go round? Hoping you still blog on the next trip though. Looking forward to hearing about it. I love your history studies. 🙂

    1. Yes I shall definitely be changing the time scale. I will be starting this summer with my littles and hopefully finish before they reach their teens. By then I’d prefer to focus on interest led learning.
      Thank you for your kind words 🙂

  3. It is such fun to look back at your older posts and see how the children have grown. As always, you are so very creative and it really shows in your unit studies.
