Imagine being able to travel around the globe in just one day! If you go to New York City, you can do just that. An exhibition there called Gulliver’s Gate shows miniature models of regions around the world, including their famous landmarks. You can see tiny ships sailing past the pyramids in Egypt. In another spot, you’ll see the Taj Mahal in India lighting up at night.
- Look through the slideshow "Map It!" to read clues and find landmarks around the world. Then think about which landmark you would like to visit. Write a paragraph explaining which landmark you'd like to visit and why.
- Design a landmark for your town, community, or state. Think about what it's made from, where it would be located, and why it represents your area. Then create a sketch or build a model of your landmark.
