How I Use It
I use it mainly to introduce new topics. The videos give students a great introduction and basic understanding to a wide range of topics. They spark conversation and interest in the topics they cover and engage students right from the start.
My Take
Brainpop is a great website for introducing new concepts across all subjects. All their videos have a solid educational base and are entertaining for children. They explain concepts clearly and concisely for all students and my class look get excited when a new video is shown.
