This is an excellent chance to be part of a worldwide initiative!

The original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are, well, ancient, and they need updating, so…

Vote for your picks for the new wonders of the world here:


I’ve narrowed my choices down to

The Colosseum
The Eiffel Tower
The Great Wall of China
The Taj Mahal
The Pyramids of Giza
The Statue of Christ Redeemer
The Easter Island Statues
Chichen Itza

I might try this as a discussion in class and see if any of my students’ arguments sway me….


Okay, I finally voted. Here was my final vote: Angkor, Christ Redeemer, Colosseum, Easter Island Statues, Great Wall of China, Pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge.

What about you?
