Take your students on a virtual field trip to the 7 Wonders of the World! Using a combination of Google Earth™ 360-degree views, informational text, and visuals, your students will learn about each of the Seven Wonders of the World from various perspectives.


Students will learn about and virtually explore the following:

  • Petra
  • Great Wall of China
  • Taj Mahal
  • Colosseum
  • Machu Picchu
  • Chichen Itza
  • Christ the Redeemer
  • Pyramids of Giza (Honorary Status)




This low prep activity includes:

:: Google Slides (all set up and ready to go!)

:: Informational text

:: Google Earth™ 360-degree views

:: Editable Response Questions


How it Works:

This virtual field trip can be conducted teacher-led or shared with students through Google Classroom as an independent assignment. Everything is set up for you. This resource is LOW PREP and would even make great sub plans. Student directions are found within the lesson, and direct links are included to specific Google Earth™ locations. Work can be completed digitally with no printing necessary.



This virtual field trip is structured. This means that the informational text and links are meaningful and are meant to lead students to think deeply about each destination. There are short answer response questions integrated throughout. This is also a great way to keep students accountable as they learn and explore.


Standards Alignment:

:: Common Core Standards for Reading Informational Text

:: Washington Social Studies Standards for History & Geography

:: National Council for the Social Studies Standards

:: Can be used as a cross-curricular activity as it fits many different standards



Please note that students will need to access Google Earth™ to complete this assignment. Google Earth™ can be accessed on a desktop using Chrome as the browser. If using a tablet or smartphone, simply download the Google Earth App before starting the virtual field trip.
