The Natural Wonders of the World

Thanks to a vote for informational and historical fiction reading, the kids in Mrs. Bair's reading clinic are currently learning about the 7 Wonders of the World. In ancient times, there were seven amazing creations that were dubbed the 7 Wonders of the World. Unfortunately, of those 7, only the Pyramids of Giza still remain. As part of the millennium celebration, a new list was created. And addition to the 7 finalists many other sites around the world were shared as wonders of nature, science, and technology.

Each student in the clinic is going to have the opportunity to pick from this list of 7 wonders, create their own list of questions, and create a presentation to teach the other students about the wonder. While we had some time to check over these during clinic today, many of the kids wanted to look over them at home, too. Below you will find out list, along with some new additions that I thought the kids might be interested in learning about! Happy researching!
