Viking Runes in Oklahoma

 
Today in Oklahoma History we started European Conquest in Oklahoma.  The first Europeans we know about are the Vikings in 1001 C.E.  Now this is incredible because we are not 100% on how they made it to Oklahoma, but we know they did!  We know because of the Heavener Stone in Eastern Oklahoma.  On that stone Viking Runes have been discovered and authenticated. 
 
So today I gave the students a sheet of Viking Runes and play dough.  They made a message in the play dough.  They had great fun!

This says, "BTW" in Runes!
