Amazon.com: Vikings: Journey to New Worlds -Great Film to go along with #TruthQuest lessons. Watched this during our study of Leif the Lucky. Starts out corny with terrible graphics (for some reason), but ends up being a beautiful film.?? I know, weird. But don't give up in the first 5 minutes, like I almost did. It was just the film I was hoping to find and we watched for FREE with #AmazonPrime =) Yay for #frugalhomeschool finds!
