Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

This week we started studying the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World.  I found a great printable paper craft of the various Ancient Wonders.  This was a Daddy craft - her and Daddy did this on his day off for Labor Day.  The simplest one was the Temple of Artemis - we put it on cardboard and added information about the Temple.  The cardboard folds together to keep it safe when not being used/displayed.  Here is the website if you would like to make one of them.... 


Then we did a foldable craft of the 7 Wonders.  I found a great website with historical information summaries of each Wonder and photos to print.  We used 8x11 card stock paper and folded it in half.  Then we joined each one so they would fold up zig zag fashion and we put the Wonder on the top and read the information about it's history together and she pasted it on the bottom half.  Great hands on way to remember them and fun!

  1. I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! Our family was part of a CC campus in Kentucky last year. We recently moved to Alabama and there isn't a campus near us (yet). We're still doing CC on our own at home this year. I am trying to post the things we do each week on my blog www.hayleycroft.blogspot.com (shameless plug). Anyway, I love the paper models you linked. Thanks so much for sharing!
