    The new seven wonders of the world

    Our project ran over a period of three weeks. We started with a

    brief look at the classic wonders of the world before moving on to

    the new.

    We sat in a seated circle and looked at pictures together of the

    wonders. We played games using the pictures like whats missing,

    memory and matching the name of the wonder to the picture. The

    children knew some wonders already. The children seemed to enjoy

    working in the circle and using the globe to search for the countries

    relating to the wonders. (So they even learned some geography.)

    They listened carefully as we talked about each wonder and its

    facts. Then we asked question to see what they had learned. They

    knew so much and were very interested.

    We talked about the wonders in "Sachunterricht" as well as in

    English. During our Geps lessons we did lots of craft things and we

    wrote some facts about the wonders in our special English book.

    We used various worksheets: true or false, word searches,

    crosswords and even had a quiz.

    The new seven wonders of the world: 1. Chichn Itza, Mexico 2. Christ the Redeemer Statue, Brazil 3. Colosseum, Italy 4. Taj Mahal, India 5. Great Wall of China 6. Petra, Jordan 7. Machu Picchu, Peru

    Facts about the New seven wonders: Chichn Itza, Mexico The ancient city of Chichn Itza is located on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. This well-known Mayan city served as a religious, political and economic center spanning several hundred years. The Pyramid of Kulkulkn is probably the most recognized ruin of Chichn Itza. This step pyramid stands approximately 80 feet high. It has nine terraces and four sets of stairs. Each staircase has 91 steps. If you include the top platform as a step, then the pyramid has a total of 365 steps one for each day of the year! Christ the Redeemer Statue, Brazil This statue of Jesus is one of Rio de Janiero's most widely recognized monuments. It stands 28m tall atop the summit of Mount Corcovado, which itself rises more than 700m high. With a hug-like wingspan of 28m, the statue seems to both beckon and welcome local residents and visitors alike. It weighs approximately 700 tons and is made of concrete and soapstone. Colosseum, Italy It is built in Rome sometime around AD 70, it was the first freestanding amphitheater. Others in that era were dug out and built into the sides of hills or mountains to provide stability. Gladiator contests, group combats, battle reenactments, and other productions were held there to an audience of nearly 50,000. Today, even after some renovations in the 1990s, the wear and tear from poor weather, natural disaster and vandalism show. Nonetheless, visitors flock to this amazing sight daily.

    Taj Mahal, India This 42-acre marble mausoleum complex located in Agra is a stunning and well-known Indian landmark. Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal (or Mogul) Emperor, built it as a memorial to his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth. Construction, which started shortly after Mahal's passing in 1631, spanned more than two decades. It required more than 20,000 laborers and cost several million rupees. Great Wall of China The Great Wall of China is definitely a modern marvel and rightfully belongs amid the other seven wonders. Contrary to popular belief, the wall isn't one continuous structure. It's actually made up of several separate structures that connect and branch out here and there. Including the branches, it covers approximately 7242km. Petra, Jordan Located in southwest Jordan are the ruins of the ancient city of Petra. Massive temples, tombs and monuments have been cut into the surrounding sandstone cliffs. Petra, which is Greek for "rock," is also known as "the city in the rock." Perhaps the most impressive Petra structure is the Sik al-Khazneh, also known as the Treasury. It is an elaborately carved and embellished tomb. Besides the decorative tomb facades and monuments, Petra is also known for its highly organized water system, which included ceramic pipes, intricate water channels and cisterns. Machu Picchu, Peru If Petra is the city in the rock, then Machu Picchu is the city in the clouds. Built in the 15th century, this ancient Incan city is nestled between two peaks Machu Picchu (Old Peak) and Huayna Picchu (New Peak) at an amazing elevation of 2350m. It is often (mistakenly) called the lost city of the Incas, because it was hidden amidst the lush forest and clouds for more than three centuries. Yale professor Hiram Bingham rediscovered the city in 1911. Since then, excavation research suggests that the city was home to about 1,200 residents at its peak. Today, it is a key tourist attraction.
