Getting Started with Inquiry-Based Learning Using a Wonder Day Project

The Wonder Week Project is an inquiry-based, week-long project, where students ask questions about anything they find interesting. These are those nagging questions they have that they’ve never had a chance to answer in school. Next, they engage in research about that topic before eventually creating a short multimedia presentation. Some students do podcasts (like a CurosityCast) and others choose a blog post or a video. They get to decide on the format.

Here’s the general process:

  • Day One: Choose a Topic and Generate Questions
  • Day Two: Engage in Research
  • Day Three: Additional Questions and Research
  • Day Four: Creative Answer (Podcast, Blog, or Video)
  • Day Five: Share Your Work
