How hard is the test of time?

Common Core takes advantage of every opportunity to build students’ cultural literacy. That is why the cover of each book we publish is illustrated with an important work of painting, sculpture, or architecture. We select images that we know students will love to look at again and again. These works relate to ideas taken up in the book. Built more than 4000 years ago, the pyramids of Giza are the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the only one still in existence. They were constructed to serve as tombs for the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Today they stand as a reminder of how few works by man’s hand survive the test of time.
