Product Description
This lesson allows students to interpret the song lyrics to "Wonder" by Natalie Merchant to the novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio. It is a thought provoking activity for the students to realize the words to the song and how they fit in with the meaning of the novel.

A summary of the novel Wonder: August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

This lesson was used with eighth grade special education students.
