1. The Grand Canyon may seem like a very desolate and unfriendly place, but it’s actually home to a variety of plants and animals. Grand Canyon National Park has 75 species of mammals (coyotes, mountain lions, deer), 50 species of reptiles and amphibians (rattlesnakes, lizards, toads), 25 species of fish and over 300 kinds of birds (falcons, bald eagles)! It is also home for a number of scorpions and spiders! Humans have also lived in and around the Grand Canyon for thousands of years.

2. Stonehenge is a mysterious circle of giant stones in southern England. It was built probably between 3000 and 2000 BC. Some of the stones weigh over 25 tons! The giant rocks were obviously arranged with some purpose in mind. But what was it? Most historians agree that it was built as a temple, but it was also probably used as an early astronomical tool!

3. The Bermuda Triangle is an imaginary triangle in the Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. Planes and ships have disappeared in the area, and some people blame the disappearances on supernatural forces. There are also natural explanations, though. The scientists say that this is one of two places on Earth where a magnetic compass points towards true north, instead of magnetic north, so planes or ships could get off course if they don’t make adjustments.

4. Can the trains go under the sea? Now they can! The Channel Tunnel is 31 miles long, and 23 of those are underneath the English Channel! It takes only 20 minutes to travel from England to France. They made a huge 90 acre park with all the dirt they dug up to build it. It took nearly 13,000 engineers, technicians and workers to build it!

5. The highest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls in the rainforests of Venezuela. It’s about 20 times taller than Niagara Falls — the water drops a distance of 3,212 feet! Because it’s surrounded by thick forests, Angel Falls wasn’t discovered until the early 1930s. The waterfall was named after American explorer James Angel, who crash-landed his plane near it soon after its discovery.
