Interesting sidebars, fun trivia, and entertaining illustrations make for an accessible and engaging trip through time while hands-on projects encourage active learning.

From the Pyramids of Egypt and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to the ruins of Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China, this activity book conveys the value of preserving the worlds treasures.
