Lighthouse Lesson Plan

The first known lighthouse was the Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt. Ptolemy I and his son, Ptolemy II, constructed it between 300 and 280 BC. It stood about 450 feet high. This lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was destroyed in stages by invaders and earthquakes, being destroyed in the 1300s.

There were never more than about 850 lighthouses in operation at once, although about 1,500 were constructed in this country over the years—the hey-day being about 1910.
