Today I found a fantastic pyramid! It’s called the Great Pyramid of Giza and it is massive and ancient!  It’s located in Egypt and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was built some 4,500 years ago! The Great Pyramid was used as a tomb for Pharaoh Khufu.

The pyramid is made up of around 2.3 million limestone blocks, each weighing an average of 2.5 tons. The pyramid’s base is a square that measures around 230 meters (755 feet) on each side, and its original height was around 146 meters (480 feet).

Next week – another Scott the Dot Anecdote!
