His WONDERS Never Cease

May 1, 2016

I have a 3rd grader who wonders constantly. I mean all day long - every day. His favorite starters are "What would happen if...", "How does...", and "Who would win between...". He came to me the other day with How does an elevator work? So, obviously we hit up Wonderopolis. We looked and much to our surprise it did not exist. What happened next, you ask? Well I encouraged him to submit a Wonder, of course. We are eagerly awaiting the Wonder of the Day that addresses this burning question.

This sweet boy is constantly curious about things. He has more questions than I could ever know the answers to so I send him to this fabulous site to get his research. I gave him a notebook the other day to keep track of his thoughts. When he has free time, he heads to Wonderopolis and then the web to get answers. Pretty sure his curiosity will NEVER be quenched but thank goodness he has a place to get started.
