I Wonder Wall

Hey everyone!

My school is an IB school (International Baccalaureate) and we love to have our kids get into inquiry.

After getting my feet wet with this last year, I am ready to dive in this year.

One way I am helping my kids rev up the inquiry is my "I wonder" cabinet door.

I grabbed some quote speech bubbles and made a header, then laminated them.

Next I put a frame on my cabinet with borders and then taped on the speech bubbles. My kids will be able to go up there and write with dry erase markers any questions they have. If we have any spare time during our unit, they can look it up on the computer.

The right side of the cabinet is going to be my "Read all about it" section. I'm going to put either a newspaper article or a magazine clipping there for my students to read. I plan on them adding sticky notes around it with their opinions, thoughts, and questions. I can't wait until my room is all put together!


  1. LOVE this idea!!! Need to make it this weekend!!!! Where did you get your speech bubbles? Thanks for sharing! I pinned it and am sharing it with my team too!

  2. Great idea -- I'm wondering where I have a little empty space for this! Sara

  3. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I'll be saving this post for future reference.

  4. My principal just introduced us to a new (at least to us) website called Wonderopolis. Your kiddos might be able to take what they're wondering about and use the computers to answer their questions on this website :)

  5. What a great idea! I just bought some "talking bubbles" and was wondering what to do with them...
    Nothing like an AHA!! moment. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  6. I love this idea! I can't wait to start implementing this! I have also used Wonderopolis and I really enjoyed it!
