What is Wonderopolis?
Wonderopolis is a free website that provides high-interest nonfiction content and a "Did you know?" for each "Wonder". The best part is that there is a new one everyday! This teacher resource is perfect for addressing our Georgia Standards of Excellence.
"Wonders" are great hooks to get students engaged in learning. While the videos captivate student attention, the question of the day can serve as lesson starters and prompts for class discussions or research lessons.
Wonderopolis also allows you to search for topics and browse by categories. This would allow you to search the archive for a Wonder that supports the lesson you have planned.
How can I use this in the classroom?
Great lesson ideas:
I know you'll love Wonderopolis as much as I do!
