I use a variation of the clock appointments with students in my 6th grade social studies class. The 7 Most Wonderful Appointments!!! which I found in the History Alive curriculum. When I asked them to go to the Colossus of Rhodes partner, I realized they had no idea what or who this was. I had a general sense, but no details.

So I found this book. It is my intention to read the brief entry for each wonder as we "use" that appointment partner. So we started with our Colossus of Rhodes partner acti

A rich resource on the seven wonders of the ancient world, articulated beautiful and with wonderful references to ancient writers, poets and sculptures. These references provide the foundation for further research into the time periods and their incredible works
Excellent illustrations and interesting writing bring kids and adults into the ancient world's architecture and culture. Very well done. Undoubtedly, it would be a bit boring for some kids. However, for those interested in archeology, history, and big/cool structures, this will be a beloved book. I wish this had been around when I was a child.

A really solid non-fiction kids book. The illustrations were really good and the book didn't "talk down" to children at all, something that I always appreciate. It was incredibly informative, and there were even some things I learned from it (especially about the hanging gardens).
beautiful pictures and explination of the historical references and aspects of those seven wonders first identifies in history, and how they survived or were distroyed over the ages leaving only the great pyramid as the sole remnate

I loved the information it taught. It was very informative but not overdone and so long that you lose interest. There is a picture in the back that shows the different wonders to scale, compared to each other. It gave a great perspective!

The book had a full page of text on one side of the page and a full page picture on the other. The facts about the 7 ancient wonders were pretty interesting. I thought the book was still a little too text heavy.
Very interesting read. I read this book to my oldest son Houston. I didn't know what the 7 wonders of the ancient world was. The only one ancient wonder still standing is The Great Pyramid At Giza.
Fairly dry but informative text along with illustrations of the seven wonders.
Wonderful illustrations.
Good book.
