How I Use It
I use it to intro topics in social studies and language arts. It would also be great for science. I use my Smartboard for delivery.
My Take
BrainPop animated stars Tim and Moby provide a great gateway into hundreds of topics. I love it for social studies and language arts. The activity sheets provided give a good stepping off point for our main lessons. Kids love taking the interactive quizzes after. We do them as a group activity which leads to good discussion when there's disagreement on an answer.
