When finished with “I Wonder” questions and research, try these:

1. Free Rice — Freerice.com is a free website that is educational and helps students give back. Each time you answer a multiple choice vocabulary question right you generate enough money for the United Nations World Food Programme to buy 10 grains of rice to help reach Zero Hunger.

2. GeoGuessr — GeoGuessr uses Google Maps Street View to place you on the ground somewhere in the world in full panorama. The problem? You have NO idea where you are! You must use context clues to guess your location and pin it on a map. Choose to be dropped in certain continents, countries, cities, etc. … or make your own GeoGuessr game with GeoSettr!

04 smarty pins3. Smarty Pins — Smarty Pins is kind of like GeoGuessr’s cousin. It asks questions from categories like arts and culture, science and geography, and history and current events. The answers are locations, and you must pin them on a map to answer. It makes geography a game, and the closer you guess, the better your score is.

4.  Wonderopolis — Kids are curious. They love to ask questions and we might not, ok we often don’t, have all of the answers. Wonderopolis is a site that asks and answers interesting questions about almost anything. Searchable and categorized by subject, students can explore over 2,000 wonders and even ask questions of their own.

5. A Google a Day — Most of us search the internet daily, if not multiple times per day. But effectively searching for something is a skill. A Google a Day challenges users to put their searching skills to the test by asking them to answer a question using Google search.

6. Pixar in a box — Pixar has partnered up with Khan Academy to bring your students Pixar in a Box. With video tutorials and interactive lessons, this course gives us a window into the jobs of Pixar animators. Topics include the art of storytelling, animation, rigging, color science and more. This course shows students that the subjects they learn in school — math, science, computer science, and humanities — are used every day to create the movies we love from Pixar.
