Web of the Week Wednesday: Wonderopolis

UEN's partner Thinkfinity has added a new partner themselves.  Wonderopolis is a new site jointly sponsored by Verizon and the National Center for Family Literacy.  This site has just launched so you can get in on the ground floor.

The basic idea of the site is to provide an interesting video to prompt discussion with families.  The video are hosted on YouTube so may not be available in all schools.  The videos will be posted each day so visit often.

You can check out their first one right here:

Thank you for sharing Wonderopolis – and enjoying the fun of Wonder with us. You're right -- this is the perfect time to get involved. Wonderopolis is only 11 days old!
We are working on a long-term solution for the videos. Every video will not be YouTube based, either.
Please send additional feedback. A special bit of news -- soon visitors will be able to nominate a Wonder of the Day! We'd love to receive Wonder nominations from Utah.
