How I Use It
Brainpop, jr. is a great tool to introduce a topic and leads very nicely into further study. The assessment is a quick check in with the students and can act as a starting point for further investigation. It can be used in many subject areas and the students always appreciate the the familiarity of the characters, as well as the humor.
My Take
This is a well-done educational tool. It is highly engaging for the younger students with its humorous main characters and short, but informative, videos. The assessment can be at a very basic level or slightly higher, which is helpful given the spread of abilities in K-2. The games and paper/pencil activities are a nice addition, but not really necessary. They are good “filler” if needed to reinforce the concept a bit.
