Welcome to Travel Tribe’s History and Culture course on the Seven Wonders of the World!

In this dynamic, fast-paced course, we will explore the history, language, food, culture, traditions, celebrations, geography, animals and famous sites of the countries of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World: China, Jordan, Italy, Mexico, Peru, India and Brazil. We will also discover the importance, culture and historical details of the country with the only remaining Ancient Wonder of the world: Egypt and the Great Pyramid of Giza. The course then dives into the construction, history and fun facts about each of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, as well as the Great Pyramids. This class isn’t all dates and names though – it’s so much more! Students explore local traditions and fun facts that shape these countries into the exciting and dynamic places that they are today.

Some of the fun-fact topics we will explore:

  • Where are the oldest human remains of anywhere on earth?

  • Why are cats everywhere in Rome? 

  • What is the most popular tourist destination on the entire continent of South America?

  • What is Arab Culture?

  • What is the Mexican Axolotl and is it true that it can re-grow its limbs?

  • How far did the Roman Empire reach, and what are the primary Roman remains that we can see from Tunisia to England?

  • What is the significance of Silk? 

  • Why are some Mexican Cenotes – or sink holes – considered sacred? 

  • How long does it take to weave one Peruvian poncho out of Alpaca fur?

  • Why is Brazil’s Carnival such a major event? 

  • Where was the first opera performed, and what’s the most popular operatic language?

  • In what country do cows and monkeys freely wander the city streets?
