How I Use It
Wonderopolis can be used as an introduction to a topic or to enhance a topic. I use for it transitions to "morning meetings". There is a short video clip that gives a hint about what the topic will be. Then, there is an article that is read aloud to students. There is no prep work involved. You can also search for specific topics to correlate with class lessons.
My Take
I love Wonderopolis. It is extremely easy to implement into the classroom. It engages students with different learning styles and interests. It is customizable because if you do not want to use the "Wonder of the Day", you can select other wonders for the students. There are also vocabulary and questions that can be imbedded into it as well.
