Viking/Roman Day

Would you rather be a Roman or a Viking?
This term we found out about Vikings - we learned about how they lived, what they wore and what they ate. We researched Viking homes and made models of longhouses.
The project culminated in a Viking & Roman Day. We spent the morning with Class 1 while they tried to convince us that being a Roman was better than being a Viking. We became members of a Roman Legion, dressed in togas and were taught how Romans worshipped. In the afternoon we invited parents to watch our performance of Viking and Roman songs.
