In this video, we learn that the Vikings were expert boatmen and sailors, who developed a new way of building boats, which allowed them to travel further than any other peoples before them.
Before watching the video, write down whay you know about the Vikings and their ships.
What is your impression of the Vikings so far?
Look at a map or globe and identify the places that the Vikings travelled to.
Why do you think the Vikings wanted to visit new places?
What properties does a boat need to have to be able to travel both across oceans and along rivers?
