Wonders of the Natural Wonders of the Natural WorldWorld
There are many lists – this one was made by CNN
Victoria Falls: The Smoke That Thunders
• On November 17th of 1855 David Livingstone became the first European to see them. Afterwards he wrote: "No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight."
The Grand Canyon
• Despite being more than a mile* to the bottom, the Grand Canyon isn't the deepest gorge in the world, but it certainly is the most spectacular.
*1 mile = 1.6 km
The Northern Lights
What was the Vikings’ explanation?
• In Norse mythology the Valkyries* would come galloping across the night sky upon their horses equipped with helmets, spears and armour that would glow and shimmer in the darkness.
• These lights, coloured red, blue, violet and green, would spread in curtains from horizon to horizon, amazing the mortals below.
* immortal, war-like virgins, maidens of Odin, immortal, war-like virgins, maidens of Odin, who bring the souls of slain warriors to Valhalla who bring the souls of slain warriors to Valhalla
Another name for The Northern Lights is?
• Aurora BorealisAurora Borealis
• The name of the effect itself comes from the Roman goddess of the dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.
The Harbour at Rio de Janeiro
• Three months after leaving Lisbon, on January 1st, 1502, the Portuguese explorer Gonçalo Coelho on his ship reached what seemed to be the entrance to an enormous river.
• The bay they found was spectacularly surrounded by huge, oddly shaped mountains that astounded the European explorers. Taking a cue from the date on which they'd found this amazing harbour, they named it the "January River" or Rio de Janeiro.
The Great Barrier Reef
• Just before 11 pm on June 11th, 1770, the HMS Endeavour*, captained by Lieutenant James Cook, ran aground.
• Though Cook didn't realize it at the time, the coral reef he had run onto was part of a vast system of 3,800 coral banks and islands that ran along the coast of Australia.
• Known as the Great Barrier Reef, it is the largest structure in the world created by living organisms.
* =Attempt, effort, enterprise* =Attempt, effort, enterprise
Paricutin: The Volcano in a Cornfield
• On February 20, 1943, Dionisio Pulido was working in his cornfield just outside the Tarascan Indian village of Paricutin, Mexico, when suddenly a volcano appeared.
• This was the first time scientists would be able to observe a volcano from birth through extinction.

The Colossus* of Rhodes

The Great Lighthouse at Alexandria
• Since it was the Greeks who made the lists it is not unusal that many of the items on them were examples of Greek culture.
• The writers might have listed the Stonehenge if they'd seen it, but this place was beyond the limits of their world.

Refleksija / Poročilo / Komentar o uporab(nost)i:
• Pričujoča predstavitev je bila uporabljena enkrat, februarja 2015 v prvem letniku gimnazije, v okviru učnega sklopa o naravnih, antičnih in modernih čudesih sveta, povezanega z Module 3 v učbeniku On Screen B2: Travel & Holidays (Victoria Falls).
• Dijaki so se izredno dobro odzvali na slikovne iztočnice in zelo sodelovali pri uri.
• Sama predstavitev je zastavljena tako, da dopušča učitelju izbiro, saj hiper-povezave na spletne strani o čudesih antičnega sveta dajejo možnost izbire: tam lahko preberejo opis čudes, legende in zgodbe o njihovem nastanku, pomenu in usodi, lahko pa si ogledajo samo video posnetke o njih. Učitelj lahko izbere glede na to, koliko časa ima na voljo in kako podrobno želi obravnavati to tematiko, sekakor pa naj bi predvidel za to vsaj dve uri.
• Ogledu te predstavitve sledi reševanje učnega lista o antičnih čudesih sveta, ki je tudi priložen.
