My students need interesting, accurate and captivating access to science concepts with a BrainPOP subscription. In science we like to start off class or reinforce important concepts with a little silly science video. Nothing can compare to these videos!
Our students live in an urban city near downtown LA. Natural or native flora, fauna and ecosystems are difficult to come by locally, so outdoor or field science is very difficult to access. Students in our magnet program are highly motivated to create science projects and learn from hands on experiences because they know the only opportunities to improve their socioeconomic challenges from which they come from lie in being successful academically and going on to college. Consequently they take advantage of our science program and follow through with extra commitments to be successful high school students. All students receive free lunch and many are 1st generation students of immigrant parents.
We love BrainPOP, even in the middle school! My kids become engaged in learning and self assessing their knowledge through these nicely designed educational videos. They serve as excellent warm-up tools as well as a way to reinforce concepts we have covered that day in class. Unfortunately BrainPOP is a challenge to acquire for any one teacher, so we usually find free mediocre alternatives. I’m hoping that with this subscription we can always have it as a fun and scientifically accurate way to review and learn important topics. BrainPOP has new and excellent lessons, that will allow us to not only watch videos but expand knowledge using the curriculum that comes with each video.
