With eight subjects divided into 32 subtopics, BrainPOP Jr.'s Health section is one of its smallest and least comprehensive. Still, a good variety of topics are covered, from dental care to drugs to Internet safety -- everything's tied together loosely under the general theme of physical, emotional, and interpersonal health and safety. Many of the topics here overlap across multiple school subjects. The Bodies unit could work in both a health and a science class. You're likely to find topics that are relevant for a variety of purposes or units -- take a look around to see what's available and where you can best use it.

Some activities, like the games and quizzes, are best for kids to do individually, while others are specifically designed for collaborative group work, so plan accordingly.
