BrainPOP – The More You Know, The More You Know


BrainPOP is one of our favorite #edtech tools.  In classrooms, on mobile devices, and at home, BrainPOP engages students through animated movies, learning games, interactive quizzes, primary source activities, concept mapping, and more.  They cover topics within Science, Math, Social Studies, English Language Arts, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Music, Health, Reading, and Writing. The content is carefully mapped to the Common Core and while there is a paid subscription, BrainPOP also offers FREE resources.
