Student Stories on the Statue of Zeus at Olympia - Preface

 

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 great Status of Zeus located at Olympia, Greece. Polk students had fun investigating this statue that was so huge "if Zeus stood up, he'd have gone through the roof!" The students also discovered how Zeus survived his father's extraordinary plot to end his life, living to become the chief god of the ancient Greeks.


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.
