Viking Ships- 5th Grade

When I heard that my fifth graders were learning about the Vikings in Social Studies, I thought it would be a great time to do a Viking ship lesson. These Viking ships were done on tooling foil. After creating the design on the foil, we added a bit of black ink, which we gently wiped off with a paper towel. This made our drawings look antique. Finally, we glued these to a black piece of paper and painted designs in the border with metallic paint.
I think these turned out nice.


  1. These are really lovely- tooling foil gives such great effects. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow! Great original Idea!

    well done!
