Here comes the powerful Viking ship, and all the children collaborated to make a huge ship shown at the Spanska class window.
We divided this project in three groups
The smaller ones started with amazing shields which protected these amazing warriors and they would put them on the side of the boat. Many beautiful colours were used and the children understood how a Spanish teacher, in Spanish, told them about the adventures of these people:
The second group were in charge of doing the rows of the ship, what was interesting and challenging was the fact that they has to transcribe from Spanish to Runic the phrase ”Yo me llamo” which means I am called.
So, as a challenge, the children had to understand the phrase in Spanish, put their name beside this phrase and then transcribe it into Runic, which they could see on the wall of the classroom, and know which rune applied to the letter they were looking for and decorate and paint their row with this:
And finally, the third group were in charge of the body of the boat and the sail with a big dragon as an emblem.
The children did as the others regarding the decoration and writing first in Spanish and then in Runic, they had a great time:
In the end, they did a fantastic job and the amazing image that it gives makes EVERYBODY stop and look at it. Go Vikings!
