How I Use It
I used it for teaching a new concept. I used it when I was assigned for coverage because it's wide range from different subjects. I am a math teacher, but sometimes, I have to cover LA classes where I can show LA related topics to the students to watch, play, and quiz them. Students love the robot "Bee."
My Take
I love it because it contains many different subjects. I am not good in social studies, but I want my lessons to be interdisciplinary, so I search the math topics and try to find something related to the topic from other subjects. I learn things about other subjects. Thus, not only the students are learning from the BrainPop, I lam earning from it too. Another thing I like about BrainPop is that it provides quizzes at the end of the videos. It checks students’ understanding. My students and I love BrainPop.
