Who are they for?

WonderWorksheets are perfect for middle grade school children and teens, especially ages 9-14. Some of the activities can be done independently, but generally they’re designed for pairs or groups, with an adult (teacher, tutor, home educator, parent) to facilitate discussion.

As such, they’re great for sharing in schools, homeschooling groups or clubs, or amongst friends, families and playgroups. Or indeed with anyone who cares about the Earth and wants to learn and change the world for the better…

UFO flying saucerReview of WonderWorksheets by EducationOtherwise.org, a major home education organisation in the UK:

“The book ‘Animals in the Forest: The Day Terrible Things Came’ is a wonderful read on its own, but there is also a pack of WonderWorksheets for English Literacy with lots of questions, discussion ideas, writing tasks and discussion topics.

Aimed for upper primary, these worksheets provide a very interesting and comprehensive set of exercises covering a wide range of activities including researching and designing your own non-fiction booklet about crows, drawing an impression of a worm’s-eye view of the animals’ discussion, writing stories from a given first line, and many more.

The worksheets are the most interesting and varied I have come across to date and show that the author has put a lot of thought and detail into each one.” ~ from EO Newsletter, Spring 2018.
