This past week the weather finely got warm enough for us to finish our viking “coins”
I also had them write a couple of sentences about Leif Ericsson in their log books along with their own names spelled out in runes.
Then we jumped forward 200 years to Marco Polo!
I want to give him his own post but so far we have:
Read a couple of books about him
Added a map of his travels to the log books
Colored pictures of things he might have seen on his journeys
Talked about where spices that we take for granted came from and why they were so special….
