World monuments — places of exceptional significance — are deteriorating and in danger of disappearing. These enangered places are all across the globe, from hurricane-racked parts of New Orleans to The Blue Mosque in Cairo. The site offers an interactive map providing the background for each endangered place as well as the subsequent efforts to try to save them from destruction. This is an excellent site for both social studies and language arts lessons.
