I’m on “tour” during the month of July and you’re invited to come along as I visit some of my favorite online destinations! This is my 3rd year of tours and you can find all my past stops in this post. Today’s stop is a fairly new discovery of mine and it’s such a fun place. Let me take you to Wonderopolis! You can read all about the site right here and I’ll quote a small part of their mission statement:
Learning is happening everywhere, all the time! We have bottled a little bit of that learning in each Wonder of the Day®. Experience a daily dose of time with your child to make the most of each and every moment together — learn something new, try out an idea, create a masterpiece, imagine possibilities. It’s easy. It’s fun. But the learning is big!
I think that Wonderopolis is a great place for anyone of any age. Everyone should enjoy learning!
You probably won’t be surprised at some of my favorite posts on Wonderopolis. I was thrilled to see Wonder #639 Who Invented LEGO® Blocks?
I was just wondering about this one the other day! Wonder #623 Why Do People Wear Ties?
Here’s a yummy one to think about, Wonder #586 Why Do Donuts Have Holes?
This one’s for my daughter who thinks it’s hilarious to ask me “how much would could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” Wonder #516 Do Woodchucks Really Chuck Wood?
Or how about this one? Wonder #366 Why Do We Blow Out Birthday Candles?
The first thing you’ll want to pick up from Wonderopolis is their free app. You can now explore the Wonder of the Day®, browse past Wonders, and easily share on Twitter and ‘Like’ on Facebook, all on the go.
If you’re wondering about something, you can nominate your own Wonder to the site using this form.
I hope you have fun exploring all the wonders at Wonderopolis!
Special thanks to Kate Hadfield for her great doodles. I always use them for my summer tour graphics because they are so much fun!
