Student Stories on the Colossus of Rhodes - Preface

"The Colossus of Rhodes", 16th century engraving of the Colossus of Rhodes, by Martin Heemskerck, The UnMuseum.


Welcome to the "Seven Wonders of the Ancient World," a student-writing project with Sonya Turlington and her Sixth-grade language arts students (from Polk County Public Schools).

Sonya led her Davenport School of the Arts students in research and writing about the Ancient Seven Wonders. It is interesting to read what impresses each student about the wonders and to see the range of research-and-writing skills. 

This story is about the Colossus of Rhodes. It proved to be a great topic of discovery for these Polk students. 

Please enjoy all 8 stories filled with student chapters on each and all the Seven Wonders!
We are delighted to work teacher and students in research, reflection, writing, citing, and publishing! Just email us or join online.
