Student Stories on the Lighthouse of Alexandria - 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 Pharos Lighthouse at Alexandria, Egypt. Students discovered how this life-saving structure—believed to be the first lighthouse in the world—could withstand massive storms and earthquakes to endure so many centuries. They even took their explorations underwater to observe recent archaeological discoveries.


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.
