Now that the dust has hopefully settled for getting the year started, many classrooms have gotten into the comfort of daily routines. Is Wonderopolis part of that routine and in what way? A required curriculum can often lock teachers into a fast-paced calendar of content topics and skill sets that drive what is done, sometimes leaving little room for exploration and discovery.
One possibility for finding something wondrous about topics across content areas is to use the Wonderopolis advanced search engine. You can enter a broad term, such as "China" to find all Wonders where mention is made of China, and I can guarantee that you will find interesting and possibly obscure facts that will interest and engage your students. Or, be more specific such as using the "Great Wall of China" or "Mongolia" to see if anything about that has been included. You can direct this or a "Wonder student" can be designated for each content area to check out relevant information.
That's one possible scenario, but I look forward to hearing many others. Please share your "routine" for using Wonderopolis--it might give each of us ideas for changing things up!
