Divide students into small groups. These groups will be the home groups. Within these groups, number students 1-3, 4, or 5, depending on how many students there are. All 1s, 2s, 3s, etc., will join together in expert groups.
The expert groups will read and take notes about a modern wonder of the world for a jigsaw reading activity, using print-outs of the wonders information from the Web site Google Arts and Culture – 7 Wonders of the Modern World, or students can work together using a computer. If using one computer per expert group, have students open the using the link you provide them and read about the wonder they have been assigned or have selected. Provide the questions (sample questions may include the following: "What is/was the wonder named? Where is/was it located? Who was it built or discovered by? When? How many years was/has it been in existence? If it no longer exists, how was it destroyed? If it still exists, what is it used for today? How many people is it visited by daily or yearly?") to the expert groups. Model for students how to read and take notes and/or answer the questions.
In expert groups, students can write a short summary together or can practice orally summarizing what they have read. Once all expert groups are confident that all the members understand what they have read and can orally summarize the information, reconvene the home groups.
In each home group, the "experts" will share what they learned about a modern wonder. The other members of the group can take notes.
After each member of the home group has shared information about a modern wonder of the world, ask students to share what they learned. Optionally, you can tell students to study their notes and give a short quiz using Quizziz or another online quizzing tool the next day.
