Homework-Week 3- Due Monday 26th

As we begin our inquiry into structures from around the world I thought it’d be nice to look at some of the strange things that mankind have constructed.

Watch this video clip then I’d like you to do some research and make up your own list of top ten man made structures from around the world. You must include at least three from Australia and the rest from around the world. When you make your list of top ten structures you must include their name, the country they are in and when they were constructed. The structures do not have to be buildings. They could be bridges, pools, buildings, towers, etc…

Enjoy making your list! 🙂

    Arc de Triumph, Paris, France 
    One of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the  western end of the Champs-Élysées and honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. It was constructed in 1806-1836 and is 50 meters (164 ft) in high

Each tram is a chain of eight egg-shaped compartments, each capable of holding five passengers. The trip to the top takes four minutes

    Taj Mahal Italy
    This beauty was 23 years in the making (1630-53) and is remarkable for its perfect symmetry. The Taj was commissioned by Emperor Shah Jahan as a mausoleum for his wife, Arjumand Banu Begum (also known as Mumtaz Mahal). Made from white marble, this majestic mausoleum features intricate details that were inlaid with precious lapis lazuli — pilfered in the 19th century. Its exterior reflects the changing colours of the day, and its beauty on a full-moon night is legendary.

    The Great Pyramid Of Giza Egypt
    For the Egyptian pharaoh Khufu, back in 2560 BC, the notion of digging your own grave transposed elaborately into constructing the Great Pyramid. Around two million stone blocks, each weighing 2 tonnes, were brought together to serve as his tomb. The Great Pyramid is the planet’s original tourist attraction — counting Antony (Cleopatra’s beau) and Napoleon among its many early visitors.

    Eiffel Tower France
    How many electricians does it take to change a light bulb on the Eiffel Tower? A whole team is required to maintain the 10,000-odd light bulbs that illuminate the 324m (1060ft) tower. Built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition and to celebrate the French Revolution, Paris’ tower was designed by Stephen Sauvestre and was named after Gustave Eiffel — who specialised in iron construction including the Statue of Liberty and portable bridges sold around the world in kits.
