Here's a different kind of cyberhunt all about the Seven Wonders of the World (the ancient world that is). Yes, get in your time-machine and travel back to visit them all. First of all you need to click here to load the answer page into a word processor. To find the answers to the questions about each of them click on the picture on the right. You will arrive at a website where you will find a carousel with each of the wonders occupying a place. Double-click on the appropriate picture to get to the information you need. Type the answers into the answer sheet. You can also copy and paste the pictures of the wonders from this web page into the first column of the answer sheet. Save and print your finished product. This is a good one! Good luck!
