This brainstorm was done after guided reading. Children read in pairs about Viking shields and at the end they completed a brainstorm as a group and presented to the class.

The students construct the longships on their own. In history, the approximate ratio of the longship’s length to the width was four to one almost the half the size of an egg carton. The construction should be carried out by at least two children. First, the children should cut the top half off the egg carton, as the bottom half will be the longships. The pieces left from the top portion will be glued over the leaks in the bottom portion of the carton. The item is then allowed to dry completely, and in the sink, water is allowed to flow and be filled close to a level of two inches. Demonstration of the longships during the Vikings age is carried out by floating the egg carton toy ship built by the students on top of the water in the sink. Further, items are placed on the egg carton to show weight.
