I sure do!! I am hoping other teachers experience this too---or I may find myself back in college, haha :) Let's face it--kids are naturally curious and their growing minds always come up with great (and some cra-zay)questions! The most recent question I had was, "Mrs. Orr what would a cross between a wiener dog and a Yorkie be called?" Any answer for that one????
Anyway.... kids can put their inquisitive thoughts to good use on the website Wonderopolis.
Wonderopolis is a fabulous site that presents a "Wonder of the Day" every day of the year! For example today's wonder was: Where is the Big Dipper? Some past wonders have been: Does every rose have a thorn? How do you paddle board? What is martial arts? Why do monkeys love bananas?
All of the past wonders are saved to the site---so you can scroll through and discover almost anything! The site is user friendly and has the wonders organized by category--so you are just a click away from making your brain grow!! :)
The best part is that kids can nominate their own wonder!! How cool would it be for a student to see his/her question get picked for a "Wonder of the Day!"
