BrainPOP Jr.’s Arts & Technology offering includes 22 animated lessons across art, music, and technology-related topics. As expected, Annie and Moby team up to explain ideas and vocabulary with their clear, deliberate pace -- a great match for K-3 students. If five minutes seems a little long to keep your whole class’s attention, try using these activities as part of a learning station in your classroom. Well-designed, with audio labels upon mouse-over, the site should be usable for even the youngest kids -- art and music teachers may especially enjoy this option. You could use “Percussion Instruments” at one table, while practicing chimes at another.

Teachers may find some tech topics (email, blogs) a little dry, but don’t overlook “Parts of a Computer,” which provides a great overview of an easily overlooked topic. For older kids, use the questions posed in the notebook -- to the side of the video -- as a note-taking skills intro. Or, have kids use BrainPOP Jr. at home, getting early learners excited about home-school connections.
