How I Use It
As the librarian, I have deemed brainpop quite worthwhile for my elementary students and have a paid subscription. My teachers use it to teach many topics and I will use it in the library for some of the reading/library appropriate videos. There are some biography videos. We spend a lot of time on biographies and I wish there were more available. Overall, the videos and the linked quizzes and other activities engage students and support the curriculum.
This is a great resource to reinforce facts or begin a new lesson. Moby is engaging and funny and kids pay attention. Brainpop provides lesson plans, quizzes and other activities to go with all of their videos.
