Wonder on the Drive

Sep 18, 2017

As I was driving back to the Chicago area from Dublin, OH, which will become my new home in about one month, I was reminded that wonder is everywhere, even in the car when you are exhausted and restless. The wind farm in Northern Indiana captured my attention once again, as it does every time that I travel through the area and I immediately made the connection to Wonder #732. This led me to have a conversation with my husband about alternative energy sources and the future of this industry in our country. It wasn't long before I had devised a lesson plan to encourage students to do the same. I snapped a photo of the wind farm and got to work.

This experience reminded me that wonder is everywhere if we just stop to think, consider, evaluate, research, and converse with others. We get so caught up in the busy-ness of life that we miss these opportunities everyday. Take time to wonder today! Check out my lesson on alternative energy also.
