Understanding Wonders of the World:
- Open up the World – Wonder of the World in your respective version of Minecraft.
- When you are in the World, you will spawn near a wall containing the current 8 Wonders of the Worlds, as well as a specially built Wonder of the World called the Chichén Itzá.
- a) Chichén Itzá is a complex of Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. A massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan, dominates the ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s.
- Take note of what makes a Wonder of the World special. Is it the fact that it’s a man-made marvel or a natural phenomenon, or perhaps both?
- Using your new-found knowledge, think about a potential Wonder in your town / city / state / province / country.
- Pick something that you think would fit as a Wonder of the World from the area that you live in. If you can’t think of anything, then don’t worry, simply pick one of the 8 current Wonders of the World and re-build that in Minecraft.
