Product Description
I've always found that my students are really interested in the Seven Wonders of the World. In this lesson students are given one of the current wonders: Chichen Itza, Machu Picchu, Petra, Christ Redeemer, the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum, or the Great Pyramid of Giza (an honorary member). They research their "wonder" and then write a postcard to someone as if they just visited it. Included are a lesson plan, a rubric, a research table, and a chart for summarizing information on all of the "wonders." Also provided are images of each site that students can cut out and glue to one side of a note card. (Making it really look like a postcard!)

This is a creative and fun assignment that is perfect for the beginning of the year or can connect to units on Egypt, Rome, India, China, the Maya, or the Inca.

Also, if you like this assignment, you might be interested in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Ancient China, Aztecs, Inca, and Maya, or Ancient India.
