Have you ever wondered Flamingos are pink?
New Wonders of the Day like those listed above are posted daily, and connect engaging informational text to content areas across the curriculum, including STEM subjects. Each Wonder meets multiple Common Core State Standards, particularly for reading and language, and can easily be used to support writing, speaking, and listening.
I created a unit to go with Wonder #1 Why Are Flamingos Pink? that has students asking questions, reading nonfiction text, writing, engaging in science and exploring collective nouns through art.
