Independent Project The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are fascinating, mainly because six of them no longer exist—so we can only speculate about their magnificent grandeur. Since only the Pyramid Complex at Giza still
remains, this social studies project includes a lot of pretend. Challenge yourself by making a brochure for a travel company or cruise line that tours the Seven Wonders! Have fun coming up with some catchy slogans, as you dive into the ancient past.
Pretend that you are starting a new travel company or cruise. Think of a
“catchy” name for your company, such as Seven Wonders Wanderers. You will be creating a brochure for the travelers.
Begin making your brochure. You can either design this on the computer or by hand. Describe each Wonder in at least three sentences, making sure to mention the importance of the site and its history. Add a picture that's either hand-drawn, or printed from the computer, for each destination.
Vote on which tour or cruise you’d like to take if it were offered! In response to the public’s interest in the Seven Wonders, there has been a renewed effort to identify additional wonders in the past few years. The New Seven Wonders of the World were identified in 2008 and the Seven Wonders of the Natural World are currently being identified. Take this activity a step further by creating a powerpoint/Imovie for these attractions!
