Google World Wonders

This is a website that has images and research that would be good to look up work for World Party.


Each student could be given a specific place to look up and write authentic work over their country.


Let me show you an example.

This is an awesome tool to bring it that writing piece of authentic literacy. Students could develop stories on their own or they could collaborate with a partner. They could write a story using characters from the story or what they learned. Here is an example:
