WONDER IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM

There are several thought-provoking collections of photos from around the world on this brilliant site, designed to provoke curiosity and spark a conversation.

Photo themes include:

  • Girls around the world going to school
  • How classrooms look around the world
  • What the world eats in pictures
  • The most dangerous journeys to school
Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head in a Taliban assassination attempt, at their school in Peshawar on October 12, 2012.

The website also has links to different ways these collections of photographs can be used to encourage students to critically reflect, such as doing a Concept Walk or taking a See, Think, Wonder approach with a selection of the images.
