Will you be up to this new challenge ?

Good luck !


That is the correct answer, Rémi (10B). It is the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. Well done Rémi !

The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It is situated on the northeast coast of Ireland,
THE LEGEND OF FINN MC COOL
You're right, Manon, legend has it that the Irish warrior Finn McCool built the causeway to walk to Scotland to fight his Scottish enemy Benandonner.

The legend tells that Fionn fell asleep before he got to Scotland. When he did not arrive, the much larger Benandonner crossed the bridge looking for him. To protect Fionn, his wife Oonagh disguised him as a baby in a cot. Then she pretended that he was actually their baby son.

When Benandonner saw the size of the baby, he assumed the alleged father, Fionn, must be gigantic indeed.

That's why, Benandonner fled home in terror, ripping up the Causeway in case he was followed by Fionn.

Next pic will be on line on Tuesday !

It IS Mount Rushmore National Memorial indeed.

Well done Sonia (10C) ! Now can you, or anyone else, name the 4 people carved in the mountain (in the right order, of course) ? Don't forget to click on "Ajouter un commentaire" to send your answer.

Well done Juliana, is is the national memorial of 4 American Presidents : George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.  Each head is about 60 feet high.
The construction of the memorial began in 1927. The rock was so hard that more than 90 % of the mountain was carved using dynamite ! The faces of the presidents were carved one after the other.
Mount Rushmore is one of the most visited monuments in the United States.

A special thank-you to Mme Monin and Juliana (10C) who both answered the question correctly. Congratulations !

Next picture will be posted on Tuesday.
