Interactive Wonder Jar

jar
Letter W

The Wonder Jar was created to take all of the discussion, engagement, and exploration that is presented on the Wonderopolis site, and bring it right into the home. By choosing a “wonder” from the Wonder Jar, families will be able to share their wonders, ideas, and knowledge with each other. The Wonder Jar and its wonder entries, both pre-written and created by families themselves, is meant to create opportunities for humorous discussion, serious discussion, and general outside of the box — or outside of the “jar” — thinking!

Get Ready to Wonder!

  • Pick out your wonder from the jar and read it aloud with your family.

  • How does it make you feel? Excited? Weird? Hungry? Silly? Use three adjectives to describe your reactions.

  • What other words, objects, or topics does it make you think about? Does it connect to things you already know, or want to know more about?

  • Go online, to the library, or to your bookshelf and find out more. Are there different opinions about it, or different ways it is shown in photos or videos?

  • Talk to your family, friends, teachers, neighbors, or experts in that topic about your wonder to share your excitement and knowledge, ask questions, and get feedback.
