Wonderopolis family challenge

A Wonder-filled opportunity for families to extend learning into the summer months and win a trip to Washington DC

Submitted By National Center for Family Literacy

Wonderopolis Family Challenge: Fremont Edition is a six-week long summer learning experience that begins at Wonderopolis.org with a specialized Wonder of the Day for Fremont families.

Each weekly Wonder of the Day will challenge families to explore Fremont's landmarks, parks, unique neighborhoods and other local attractions.

Parents and children will engage in an online activity such as a crossword puzzle or word search and some sort of reflection representing their offline activity in the community.

Wonderopolis.org will inspire parents to seek and nurture a brighter world for their children through the power of discovery, creativity, learning and imagination. Wonders of the Day help families find learning moments in daily life, ones that fit with dinner preparations are carpool responsibilities or a stolen moment between breakfast and the bus.

Families fully completing three of the six-week Wonders of the Day will be entered into a grand prize drawing for an all-expenses paid vacation for a nuclear family to the nation's capitol - Washington DC.

The Family Challenge will launch on Monday, June 20 which is the first Monday after Fremont schools recess for the summer. The last weekly Wonder of the Day will be published on Monday, July 25. The Challenge will end on Sunday, July 31 when all families must have their activities and reflections completed and submitted.

The National Center for Family Literacy seeks educational and community organizations serving families as co-operating partners in the Wonderopolis Family Challenge: Fremont Edition. Through this partnership, local organizations will be able to bring rich educational resources to the families they serve in Fremont and provide enduring educational experiences that families will never forget.

Wonderopolis is supported with generous funding from the Verizon Foundation and brought to life by Toyota.
