While I was attending the NCFL Conference, someone asked me if I knew the Wonder of the Day from Wonderopolis that day ….

I had to sadly admit that I did not know …

But I quickly found out:

While in a 4th grade classroom today, I gave an instruction to students getting ready to view a video about animal adaptations. I told the students they all neeed to watch very closely because I was going to ask someone about the most interesting part of the video, but since I was not telling who was going to be asked, all of them needed to be ready!

Once the video ended, I asked for any students who had green socks to stand up. Five students slowly raised up and shared interesting things they learned from the video. After they shared, more questions were asked.

One student mentioned that some animals changed color …

So I asked why ..

And then asked if students knew what that was called …

When students responded with camouflage, the past Wonder of the Day mentioned above quickly came to mind, so I told the students about it and the great video accompanying it!

It was such a big hit that we had to watch it again!

I would be that those students won't forget the meaning and impact of camouflage …
