The Great Pyramid of Giza - Fun Facts for Kids

Updated: 4 days ago

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the world's most recognisable historical structures. But just how 'great' is it?

Here's some fun Giza facts to blow your mind:

  • Height: The Great Pyramid of Giza is approximately 147m tall (that's 33 double decker buses stacked on top of each other!)

  • Made from: Approximately 2,300,000 limestone blocks, each block weighing at least 3 tons (the same weight as a Hippo)

  • Construction Time: It took just 20 years to build. That means setting 1 limestone block into place every 5 minutes! Yep, through the night too.
