The Great Pyramid of Giza - Fun Facts for Kids
Updated: Oct 5
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.
