Did you ever Wonder?

Did you ever wonder if llamas really spit? How about what are ten strange holidays?

Wonderopolis is a web site sponsored by Thinkfinity that poses questions like this accompanied by a picture or video and then text that answers the question.

This would be a great way to add some novelty into a lesson, stimulate curiosity, and practice some skills. Why not have students read the text and summarize it or find the main idea? Vocabulary is also included in the text to add to the academic value.
