Fifth Grade Social Studies: Make your own Wonder of the World Project and Rubric
This project was NOT in the Passport curriculum, but is a fun project that kids can work on!
Directions: You have recently replaced a King who was not well liked. He never did anything for his people and for the last fifty years, he never improved his country. He did not build a single new building, and he did not come up with any new ideas to help his people. In fact, the people were so upset that they tossed him in jail and decided to place you on the throne. You are now the new ruler and you feel the pressure to do something grand to impress the people. So you have decided to create your own Wonder of the World to make your country and people happy again.
1. After researching the natural wonders of the world, you will be choosing a wonder of the world that you would like to create, and be sure to create a name for your wonder of the world
2. Under your title/name of your wonder, illustrate what your wonder will look like when it is finished. Be sure to color in the wonder.
3. Include a brief description of what it is like: Describe your wonder. How tall is it? How wide is it? What is it made of? What does it look like? What does it symbolize? What does it say about you or your country?
