****SALE This weekend only, you can purchase the pack for only 3$, THEN IT WILL GO BACK UP TO 5$****
The W.I.S.E. crew is a wonderful way to get students to explore, search and investigate their wonderings. It is very similar to an Einstein's Club or Mastery Club. This pack is designed to either be an enrichment activity, extra credit, or for those students that finish their work early. It works with the website Wonderopolis. Wonderopolis poses a question, or wondering, and then helps the students investigate the answer through videos, online field trips, pictures, and exploring through various activities. This program is split up into 5 categories: math, language arts, science, social studies, and misc. There are 15 questions to explore in each category. Students choose which questions they would like to explore further. Read more about this program here.
The program can be used as a bulletin board or kept in a binder. The questions are displayed for students to choose which one(s) they would like to explore further. Included in this pack is a livebinder with all of the questions bookmarked and organized by subject. Students will record their findings on the answer sheet.
This activity lends itself so well for students to have the freedom to explore. It teaches students to search out the answer to their questions, but it does it in an organized and safe environment. It is also a very flexible activity. Students can complete the exploring at home, during centers, when they finish their work, or even as a class project. I hope that you and your students enjoy this packet.
