Wonders and Imagination

We have talked lots since the beginning of school about our imaginations and how it is so important for us to use them in everything that we do! Today, we looked at how our imaginations can help us wonder things… and also how we can only really learn things when we wonder them for ourselves rather than have someone just tell us.

First we started by reading the book “Stella, Princess of the Sky” where Stella and her little brother, Sam wonder about different things. Click on the link read the story. Click on the other link to read a different story about Stella and Sam’s wonders!

Afterwards, we started sharing different things that we wonder and trying to find the answers on the AWESOME website called Wonderopolis (http://wonderopolis.org/). Tonight with your families, share some different wonders you have and see if you can find any information or answers on Wonderopolis!

Challenge: Leave a comment below with 1, 2, 3 or more of your wonders. If you want to add to your challenge, write some of the answers you discovered!! I wonder what are some of your parents’ wonders??? Sometimes that is tricky for grown-ups!

    Sophie wonders
    1) How does oxygen come from plants? Plants help make fresh air but how does that happen?
    2) How are some animals faster than humans? After all we are all mammals but some of them are faster than us.
    3) After we die how can we still be alive in Heaven? (Parent comment – wow, I wonder if wondeopokis can actually answer this one!)

    Ploto isn’t a planet because there are 3 rules but Ploto didn’t follow the 3rd rule and that is all.
