Over 2,000 years ago, ancient Greek scholars named seven of the most wondrous monuments to civilization, including the Pyramids of Egypt and Statue of Zeus at Olympia. Through the centuries these treasures were known as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Because all but the Egyptian pyramids have been lost to the ravages of time, a new list of seven wonders was established in 2007. These monuments, including Machu Picchu in Peru and the Great Wall of China, symbolize the creativity and ingenuity of human civilization.Seven Wonders of the World introduces kids ages 9–12 to the seven wonders on the original list and the seven wonders on the new list. Learning about these icons of world culture offers opportunities to discover amazing civilizations, technological innovations, and our shared world heritage.

This is a great resource.... creative, accurate and well put together. My sixth grade students absolutely love it!

Way too many opinions. There needed to be more facts and the way the facts were spread out just made it confusing. Example, they told me that "something happened to a city", and then told me when that thing actually happened till two pages later. It does have some good activities in it, but only if you can bear through reading it and if you are going to read this just for the arts & crafts, I recommend you do not.

Do you know what the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were? When I was a boy, my family had a little book that told what these Seven Wonders were and described what we know about them. They were the Great Pyramid of King Khufu at Gizeh in Egypt, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in what is now Iraq, the Temple of Artemis or Diana at Ephesus in modern Turkey, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia in Greece, the Masoleum of Halicarnassus at modern Bodrum also in Turkey, the Colossus on the island of Rhodes in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria in Egypt. Because I was always interested in history, I spent many happy hours perusing that book. This original list was drawn from the writings of Herodotus, Philo of Byzantium, and Antipater of Sidon, dating from the fifth to the second centuries B.C.
However, only one of those wonders is standing today. Can you guess which one it is? In 2001 Bernard Weber founded the New 7 Wonders Foundation, whose goal is to celebrate our global diversity as well as our common heritage, and gave people all over the world the chance to help create a new list of Seven Wonders of the World that can still be seen. Over 100,000,000 people of all ages voted by phone and computer, and in 2007 the list was announced at a big party in Lisbon, Portugal. It includes the ancient Nabataean City of Petra in modern-day Jordan, the Colosseum at Rome in Italy, the Mayan temple city of Chichen Iza in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, the ruins of the Incan city of Machu Picchu near Cuzco in the Andes Mountains of Peru, the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal of Shah Jahan at Agra in India, and the Christ the Redeemer Statue at Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
Seven Wonders of the World, one of the over thirty titles in the non-fiction "Build it Yourself Series" from Nomad Press, has fourteen chapters, one for each of the original Seven Wonders of the World and one for each of the new Seven Wonders. Every chapter contains information about the location and history of each wonder along with sidebars containing words to know, travel tips, and other interesting factoids. There are also one or more interactive projects of different kinds to reinforce some aspect of that particular wonder. Some examples are making a royal ship puzzle for the Great Pyramid, making Babylonian bricks for the Hanging Gardens, making a cloud forest in a bottle for Machu Picchu, and making millet porridge for the Great Wall. The back of the book contains a glossary, a list of resources, and an index to increase its usefulness. This is a very clever way of introducing students to some of the important achievements of our world's history.
