How I Use It
I used it mostly for supplement---research, flybys of inquiry, etc. It was made available to all families, so it become part of both home and school learning.
My Take
This has something for everyone--both advanced and remedial, along with curriculum content and inquiry learning. The short Brain Pop movies are great for starting a lesson or as supplements to research. It helps students explore topics of interest for research. And it can be accessed at home.
