Learn about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, by creating this hands-on printable replica of one of the Wonders of the Ancient World. Our Hanging Gardens Replica was created by meshing photos of the famed Ishtar Gate and following, to the best of our ability the ancient primary sources which exist describing the Hanging Gardens. We include, in our Instruction sheet, several quotes from Strabo, Clitarchus and Diodorus Sichulus, which described this Wonder of the Ancient World. Looking closely, you can see the small river/waterfall which it was said was pumped up through the Gardens and spilled down.
This pdf contains the 2 printables of the garden (top and foundation) and an instructional sheet with primary sources. We recommend using cardstock for printing and an exacto blade, if possible for cutting. With a little tape and folding, this product will be an excellent visual for instructional use, or as a hands-on activity for students to create.
