A Fun and Memorable Tool
I love BrainPOP videos as a way to reinforce things that we have already learned. I appreciate that the videos are short, so they can be used at the end or beginning of class.
How I Use It
When teaching historical fiction in my ELA classes, I show BrainPOP videos to help refresh their memories of an era or to build additional knowledge. Often, the details from the BrainPOP videos are the details that they are most likely to include in their writing.
