This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – The Colossus of Rhodes. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
Located on the island of Rhodes off the coast of modern Turkey, the Colossus at Rhodes was a giant statue, about 110 feet tall, of the Greek sun-god Helios. Although finished in 282 BCE, this Wonder of the Ancient World only stood for 56 years, when it was toppled by an earthquake. Huge chunks of the former statue stayed on the beaches of Rhodes for 900 years, drawing people around the world to marvel at how man could create something so enormous.
The presentation covers the following:
Why Was the Statue Built?
Siege of Rhodes
