I Wonder

Paige Paradis and Kim Woodring, 2nd Grade Teachers
Last Friday, we watched a TEd Talk about an ocean explorer who talked about the power of wonder and why it's so important for adults and children to follow their curiosity and sense of wonder.  He has explored the greatest depths of the ocean and has filmed some of the most interesting and fascinating ocean creatures.  Our second graders then brainstormed a list of "I wonders" that they have about the world around them, and they worked with their partner to plan how they could pursue that "I wonder" as an adult.
