I have a challenge for you ...
I don't think it will be very difficult ...
It could be beneficial for us all ...
Wonderopolis Wonder Year Adventure this year. When I look at what Wonderopolis has to offer, I see so much potential to use the things shared there both in the classroom and at home. Each Wonder of the Day from Wonderopolis includes an image, a video, some questions to promote thinking, a list of word that could be introduced, and some ideas for further exploration.
I want you to go to Wonderopolis and find a current or past Wonder of the Day that you can use along with a lesson you teach. If you click on the Wonders tab at the top of the page, it will take you to a collection of the past Wonders of the Day. Now all of them are interesting, but instead of trying to read all of them to find something you can use, you can either choose a category from the list in the sidebar or you can use the search box at the top of the page.
Here are some blogs and blog posts that demonstrate ways others have connected various lessons, ideas, and experiences with a Wonder of the Day from Wonderopolis:
