How I Use It
Our middle school science department uses BrainPOP the most, although the entire middle school has access. The teachers use BrainPOP to introduce complex topics of chemistry, engineering, physics, and more. Students were engaged and enjoyed the short, simple videos.
My Take
BrainPOP is a great resource! I like that there are so many videos on a variety of topics and that all videos are organized by topic. The videos are standards based and provide additional content such as activities, games, Q&A, quizzes, and more. Related videos are suggested and videos even have lesson plan ideas. All videos have closed captioning.
