In order to introduce schoolchildren to the most impressive architectural structures from all over the world in just one hour, the educators of the part are running an education programme “21 Wonders of the World” at the Babylon Gardens. We invite everybody to a wonderful journey around the world from the shores of America to the beaches of Australia.
During the education, children will learn which continents are home to certain cultural objects, in which country they were built and what makes them special. The education consists of theoretical and practical parts.
During the theoretical part of education (duration – up to 40 minutes), while walking around the garden, the participants will be introduced to twenty-one miniatures of architectural structures from four continents of the world: Africa and the Middle East, Asia and Oceania, Europe and America. Nine of 21 miniatures of the “Gardens of Babylon” are featured in the most significant lists of the most impressive structures in the world. The Gardens of Babylon and the Pyramid of Cheops are included in the list of World Wonders; Windmills, Sydney Opera House, St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow – on the UNESCO World Heritage List; The Pantheon, the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, the Colosseum – to the latest list of wonders of the world.
The practical part of the education (duration – 20 min.) consists of identifying twenty-one architectural objects from the photo displayed on the multimedia screen and sticking stickers of the objects in the miniature park on the world contour map poster.
Both the theoretical and practical parts of the ” Twenty-one Wonders of the World” education will expand the participants’ cultural awareness, strengthen their knowledge of art, history, and geography due to familiarity with architectural structures, the history of their creation, and their significance in the world.
