The Lighthouse of Alexandria


Around 280 BC, a huge tower was built along the coast of Alexandria and it is said to be one of the 7 wonders of the world. It is believed that this tower reached up to approximately 450 feet tall. Unfortunately, it was severely damaged by 3 earthquakes. There are rumors that Egypt is considering rebuilding this magnigicent tower. Why not? Might as well preserve history.


Creative thinking and writing exercise: Can you think of any "modern wonders" that would qualify as being as magnificent as the 7 wonders? If so, please describe.
