Description:

This web page features activities that compare the Great Pyramid to such modern structures as the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. In the first activity, students use a template to construct a scale model of the Great Pyramid. They must find the scale heights for the tallest building in their neighborhood or for their height. In the remaining activity, students are given the dimensions for two other pyramids and challenged to create models. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
