World Wonder Day

I wonder…

What if…

What if students around the world were empowered to ask these questions? And what if, by doing so they were also empowered to make a positive impact on the world, both locally and globally?

This is the goal and purpose of World Wonder Day.

On November 21st, 2016, the second World Wonder Day will be celebrated.

On or around this day, students around the world will connect with a partner school (matched by the World Wonder Day team). They will share what they have learned about homelessness and homeless people, how it relates to what they are learning in school, how they have or will use what they have learned, and what they wonder about the same topic in the area of the world where they are connecting via Skype with their partner school. Classes will challenge each other to use what they have learned to make a positive impact on their community. They will share ideas, goals, differences, and commonalities.

They will change the world…by wondering…together. Because when kids wonder, wonders can happen.

World Wonder Day & 2016 Theme

This year’s World Wonder Day theme is Researching & learning about Homelessness

Students will share what they wonder about homelessness and homeless people in their area and in another part of the country or world.

On World Wonder Day  participants will connect via Skype with another class in the world. Students in each class will take turns responding, sharing, and answering the other class’s “wonders” and also celebrate one another’s success of learning together in order to make a positive impact on the world.

What is the World Wonder Day?

The idea behind World Wonder Day is simple….

We all have questions that make us wonder and learning and discovering the answers together can help make a wonderful world. On World Wonder Day students around the world will connect, discuss and together find solutions and answers to their shared wonders which can make a difference in the world both locally and globally.

Here we will share with you some sample questions to help you get started and encourage your students to create and share their own…because when kids wonder, wonders can happen.
