New 7 Wonders of the World

Each group (3) has been given a new wonder. Each group has to present an argument that convinces us to vote for that WONDER to be in the 7 new wonders of the world.
There is two parts to this task:
  1. A 4-5 minute presentation that must include a powerpoint presentation to be shared in class.
  2. Information put on the Wikispace to convince readers to vote for their wonder. Remember that people outside of our classes will be reading this – convince them to vote for the new wonder you have researched.
