Next week is a great time to spend learning and wondering as a family.  Below are several Wonders from Wonderopolis.org to share while spending time with your family.

#45 What Is a Totem Pole?

#46 What Is a Cornucopia?

#53 Why Do We Eat Turkey on Thanksgiving?

#407 What Does It Mean To Be a Native American?

#417 Is It Thanksgiving Without Cranberries?

#418 Why Is It Called “Black Friday”?

#419 How Long Do Leftovers Last?

If you are an educator, be sure to share these Wonders with parents.  I will be sharing them with families via my classroom blog and our class Twitter account.

If you are a parent and are looking for ways to interact with your children while they are out of school next week, check out this post, Using Wonder to Engage Children Over the Summer.  The activities can be used anytime, not just during the summer months.

Check out my fellow 2012 Wonder Leads and how they infuse Wonder in their own homes, and nurture their students to wonder at home:

You can read more about using Wonder and Wonderopolis in and out of the classroom by going to the Wonder Playground at Wonderopolis.
