BrainPOP! Who were the Pilgrims?

Last year I discovered BrainPOP–an educational site for kids filled with movies, information and activities about science, social studies, English, etc. While browsing through the site recently, I learned about BrainPOP Jr. The site states:

BrainPOP Jr. provides educational movies and homework help for K-3 students. Each animated movie has quizzes, games, vocabulary, and activities for kids. BrainPOP Jr. is a great resource for teachers and homeschools, offering lesson plans and lesson ideas that develop critical thinking and inquiry skills.

I love this site because it is filled with wonderful animations that are exciting for children (and adults) to view. Plus, resources like the reading word wall and games page are great links to send home to parents, so that they can help their children learn key vocabulary and skills at home.

Since many of us will celebrate Thanksgiving this week. Why not share this BrainPOP Jr. Thanksgiving video with your students titled, “Who were the Pilgrims?

Happy Thanksgiving! -Anna

    I checked out the BrainPop and forwarded it to some teachers I know who have adolescence who are literacy students. I will be interested in their comments. I liked the content of the video but not sure of the appeal to older learners. The website is colorful and attractive. I will explore it further.

    Thanks Nancy! I agree that the BrainPOP videos have more appeal to elementary and middle school students. If you know of any other great online resources for language and literacy teachers, feel free to share. Thanks for posting on our blog! -Anna =)
