How and why the vikings came from Scandinavia via Iceland and Greenland to Canada




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Christopher Columbus was not the first European in North America. The vikings landed in Newfoundland and stayed for 10 years.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Vikings children had to learn to survive by themselves where today us children are very protected by our parents.
