How I Use It
I mainly use BrainPop as a review. After I have introduced a topic, we will watch a BrainPop video and use the quiz at the end of the video as an assessment. Sometimes the students use their ActivVotes during the assessment.
My Take
The students love BrainPop. Tim and Moby (a kid and his friend robot) read a question that has been sent in from a student. Tim and Moby then answer the question and provide information about the topic. Topics range anywhere from lines of latitude to how to prepare for a standardized test.
