Try This - Get Writing Ideas at Wonderopolis

By Henry:

I think Wonderopolis is a great place to get writing ideas.  I wouldn't have thought about writing about the toilet otherwise.  

Wonderopolis is a website that asks and answers a different interesting question each day.  There are things to try and connections to make, and you can always visit the old wonders.

You can use true facts then to write a story or a poem.  I read Wonder #1445, "Who Invented the Toilet?" and then I wrote a poem telling about the people who invented the toilet.  

If you are stuck on an idea, go to Wonderopolis.  

Here's my notebook page and poem:

The Toilet

Who invented the toilet?
Sir John Harrington
invented
the toilet
for his mother,
Queen Elizabeth.
Although he did not
invent 
the flush toilet,
Thomas Crapper did.
