Remember when students asked five hundred questions a day? Children start out their academic careers insatiably curious. They wonder how grass smells, how far away is the sun, and are giants real? Sometimes, it is hard to keep up with all those creative questions. Fortunately, Wonderopolis is just the place to let children explore, discover and make connections about their wonders.

In the White Oak Middle School Library, we wonder everyday, and this year we have found a new way to wonder with Buncee. Pairing Wonderopolis with Buncee creates a fun, interactive experience for the students. In our Exploring Nature Buncee below, students learned about Native Americans and their customs, wildlife, and fun facts such as,”Why does wood crackle when it burns (Wonder #1338)?”

Once they explored all the wonders, students had the opportunity to start an adventure of their own. By choosing one of the activities on the following slides, students put their curiosity into action.
