Recently, I came across this wonderful site for elementary school teachers (and parents of children that age): Wonderopolis. This delightful site posts a “wonder of the day” (ex: “Why does cactus live without water?” “How does someone become homeless?” and “Where is the edge of the universe?”). This post is supplemented by a gallery of related images, vocabulary words, additional links for more information, and a quiz. What a great way to kick-start learning every morning!
