World of Wonders
Have you ever wondered why The Hanging Gardens of Babylon or a man-made structure such as The Channel Tunnel are called Wonders of the World? Why is Victoria Falls classified as a Natural Wonder, but the Great Lakes are not? What classifies a structure as a Wonder? What are the characteristics of these Wonders? Does it have to do with their significance to society or the technology used to build the Wonder and most importantly, why are there Seven Wonders of the World - not 5 or 13? Taking a closer look at these various Wonders of the World, we came up with some characteristics as to what makes a structure a Wonder and looked even closer at how it was designed and constructed.
