Teacher Review For BrainPOP

Kind of cheesy, but they do a good job of getting the information across.

How I Use It
I use it as an introduction to lessons, or sometimes, to reinforce if they are unclear. There are 10 question quizzes at the end that I have the class do as a whole and it lets them talk and come to a single consensus. These often lead to at least one argument as the kids try to justify their answer. Great discussion points. The are cheesy though.
My Take
They are short and to the point. Each little cartoon last between 2-4 minutes. There are tons of different topics, though I only look at the mathematics ones.
