BrainPOP Featured Movie
Grade Recommendation: 3rd - 12th grades
Specific Skill: Varies
The home page of this app features one movie each day. The subject matter and targeted grade level varies. After viewing the video, users are able to take the accompanying quiz. The app also always has the option for users to view a short movie about BrainPOP. Students who have previously viewed any of the videos from the subscription-based BrainPOP suite will find this app to be quite familiar.
The app also contains approximately two dozen additional movies/quizzes in the areas of science, Social Studies, English, math, arts & music, health, and tech & engineering.
The subscription-based BrainPOP is one of my favorite resources and I'm thrilled they decided to make an app available too. Although, I wish they would allow users with subscriptions to login via the app to have full access to all videos.
