A few weeks ago I wrote about a some things that were new to me. Wonderopolis.org was one of those things. (past blogpost)
With the year winding down my students are finishing their projects and some groups are finishing before others. Most years I have them practice proper typing but this year I pulled out the iPads and had the students look into any wonder that interested them. They were then responsible for creating a "Did you know?" paper that I would hang up near the related non-fiction section in the library.
The students had so much fun. They asked to do it again the following week.
