Teach Through Educational Travel: Stonehenge

Download a larger image of Stonehenge in England and share the photo with your class. Then discuss the following:

  • Stonehenge was built at around the same time as the pyramids at Giza, over 4,000 years ago. What other ancient sites were built around that time? What was the purpose of each? Compare and contrast them to Stonehenge.
  • Stonehenge was built without the benefit of modern equipment. Imagine that you are the engineer in charge of building Stonehenge, using only human labor. Write a journal entry explaining how the work will be done.
