NCFL knows that parents see their children not only for who they are, but for all they can become. We understand the importance of connecting the learning we do in our schools, our homes, and our communities. We know natural curiosity and imagination lead to exploration and discovery in learners of all ages. That's why we created Wonderopolis®.
We wanted to spark new paths of wonder and discovery in family and classroom settings by answering intriguing questions:
- Have you ever wondered why flamingos are pink?
- Have you ever wondered what ice cream headaches are really all about?
- Have you ever wondered why bees buzz?
New Wonders of the Day® like those listed above are posted daily, and connect engaging informational text to content areas across the curriculum, including STEM subjects. Each Wonder meets multiple Common Core State Standards, particularly for reading and language, and can easily be used to support writing, speaking, and listening.
