I'm doing a workshop today for teachers grades k-12 on using wikis.  Most
of the examples I have are from high schools, so I asked the Twitter
community for help and got these results:  

This is my favorite:  [ http://karlfisch.wikispaces.com/abbytravelogue

From a friend on Twitter comes this recommendation: [
http://bensonlibrary.pbwiki.com/ ]http://bensonlibrary.pbwiki.com/  They
have a nice page on wiki etiquette and cybersafety. [

 http://crosbyprojects.wikispaces.com/  I don't see a lot of obvious
collaboration, but it could be that people are adding links to each page
about particular animals. 

More Twitter recommendations:  Two are elementary and one is high school,
but they may give you some usable examples.

The Mt. Abe 10th grade wiki may be overwhelming, but it is a wiki used by
all 140 students taking US History.  I love it!!  Let me know if you want
help exploring it.  I'm showing it at the Vita-Learn meeting next week.
