How I Use It
I use BrainPop with my middle school students in the classroom. I found it very easy to use as a whole group introduction or small group reteach. BrainPop even has a teacher resource section addressing Common Core lessons. The quick quizzes at the end of each movie allow for immediate feedback to students and teachers.
My Take
I love this app. My own 5-year-old chooses to go on this app for fun. He loves the animation and fun facts. The app is very easy to use. He can go on by himself and easily searches topics.
